Girls football – giving voice to the aspirations of tribal girls in the state of Jharkand

Girls in the tribal areas around the District of Hazaribagh having a burning desire to play football. Not only to play, but to be recognised as footballers in their own right. Our local partner in education and gender balancing brought together some 10 teams, 120 tribal girls for the first ever all girls football tournament in the area. We were told the girls were so keen to play they often borrowed their siblings uniforms and which was a flash point in their family situation as they would inevitably need to play at the same time. Lotus Outreach loved the idea and agreed to supply their uniforms.
