Empowering Girls Through Football in Pakistan

Support the Opening of the first Female Football Academy in Yasin Valley, one of the remotest areas of Pakistan

Did you know that Pakistan is ranked 145 out of 146 countries according to the "Gender Gap Index" 2022?
The Index is measuring the extent of gender-based gaps among four key dimensions (Economic Participation and Opportunity, Educational Attainment, Health and Survival, and Political Empowerment) and tracking progress towards closing these gaps over time.

Did you know that only 13% of girls in Pakistan participate in sports?
This is due to cultural and societal barriers that limit girls' access to sports and physical activity.
“The barriers and challenges Muslim females face in sport are still very much the same from reports conducted 15 years ago.” A report published by England's largest Muslim women's sports charity, Muslimah Sports Association (MSA), found 97% of British Muslim women surveyed wanted to increase their current participation in sports - yet only 13% are involved in sports.

Factors that currently impede participation encompass:

⛔️ Religious and cultural barriers: These may stem from specific religious beliefs or interpretations that restrict involvement in sports.
⛔️ Societal expectations: Traditional perceptions of women's roles and behavior can limit their engagement in sports activities.
⛔️ Insufficient women-centric spaces: The dearth of women-only facilities or environments might hinder their willingness to partake in sports.
⛔️ Inadequate modest sportswear: A lack of suitable attire that adheres to cultural or religious requirements can serve as a barrier for some women.
⛔️ Risk of discrimination: The potential for encountering discriminatory attitudes or actions can discourage women from participating in sports activities.

Yasin Valley is a remote region in northern Pakistan, where many girls lack access to education and basic health services. In addition, there are few opportunities for girls to engage in sports and physical activity. This has a significant impact on their health, well-being, and confidence.

However, we believe that every girl deserves the opportunity to play and excel in sports. That's why we are launching a campaign to open a female football academy in Yasin Valley, Pakistan.

We believe that football can be a powerful tool for empowering girls and promoting gender equality. Through our female football academy, we will provide 100 girls in Yasin Valley with a safe and supportive environment to learn and play football.

Our 3-year program will offer:
• Professional Coaching and Training
• Life skills education and mentorship
• Health and nutrition support
• Access to equipment and facilities

Our Goal:
Our goal is to raise €45,000 to cover the costs of launching and sustaining our female football academy for the next three years.
