A group of 10 girls from Jharkhand have been given an opportunity by the internationally acclaimed NGO YUWA to undergo a two-week UEFA 2017- Level 1 training program at the Spanish Club – Real Sociedad. This initiative is also supported by BookASmile.

The girls are provided with the best-in-class training directly from players of Real Sociedad. The aspiring footballers also got a chance to walk out on the field with the Real Sociedad players before the match against Real Madrid on Sunday.

At BookASmile, we are always working towards providing children with opportunities, that usually people like you and I take for granted. We believe in the power of sports for development, especially for young girls from vulnerable backgrounds. It’s a step in the right direction, to not only help YUWA build a stronger football community but also empower the girls of Jharkhand.
