Girls Play Global- Kicks for Climate Action

Girls Play Global is a non-profit initiative to increase opportunities for girls in rural India to play sports. Unlike developed countries, female athletes in India are still faced with many challenges, like a lack of encouragement from their own families to play sports and even finding a coach willing to train them.  In order to break the stigma around girls playing sports in India, this organization was created.
 All the money we raise will be used solely for the purpose of promoting gender equality and athleticism among high school girls in India. Girls Play Global plans to accomplish this by conducting an annual all-girls soccer tournament in rural parts of India to build self-confidence, physical fitness, and mental wellness among girls whose schools lack basic athletic facilities. 
All of the funds collected will supply the teams' equipment needs, food and travel expenses, soccer apparel, AV equipment, awards, and awareness creation materials.
This year's tournament theme is to create awareness about climate change and to encourage communities to take action. For this reason, we believe that a soccer tournament will be a fun and interactive way to involve families in learning about global issues as well as how to address them.
