Yuwa, which means "youth" in Hindi, uses football to empower young girls to overcome violence and child marriage and choose their own futures.  We work with girls from underprivileged families in rural Jharkhand, India, where girls are at high risk of child marriage and human trafficking.  We use team sports and education to build character, confidence, and courage, giving young girls the drive to compete, achieve goals, and create bright futures for themselves.
