Amid the hustle and bustle, gifts and gadgets, and Cyber Monday sales, does the story of 250 girls a half a world away stand a chance?
This December, give a girl the gift of a lifetime: the power to define her own future.
Yuwa works in a region in India where 100,000 girls are trafficked each year* and 56 percent of girls here are married as children. This state, Jharkhand, ranks worst in India for both, and second worst for female literacy and sanitation – six in ten women can’t read and 92 percent of rural people have no access to a toilet.
Yuwa uses football (soccer) to bring girls out of isolation, get girls into school, and give girls the confidence to imagine a different future. And our girls are inspiring millions.
Beginnng December 15th, we will bring you 13 stories of girls who bring to life the impact of Yuwa’s programs. To hear these stories, Like Yuwa's page on Facebook.
Yuwa relies on the generous contributions from people like you to keep empowering girls. No amount is too small.
Society teaches girls to fit in. Yuwa coaches girls to stand out. Stand up and join Yuwa today.
