THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME

Four youngsters (Navnita K, Manoj Kumar, Arbaz Pasha, and Harshitha TR) have recently returned from Lyon, France, after representing India at the StreetFootballWorld Festival 16! 

Accompanied by their coach Prasanna and delegation leader Pavithra KL, the young delegates returned from France brimming with stories of memorable moments: which included playing football in an entirely different atmosphere, winning 3 of the 11 matches they played and making friends from different countries. The experience also helped them develop empathy as they interacted with young people who came from circumstances more difficult than their own lives.

They come away with a commitment to use this opportunity and encourage more girls in their communities to learn football. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank BookASmile, a charity initiative of BookMyShow and other donors for supporting these young people in pursuit of their dreams.
