Soccer allows Tibetan women to enrich their lives through playful interaction with each other. This generates a positive presence in their community and inspires hope for their futures. According to the United Nations, sports have the power to uplift, unite and empower communities. Sports have the power to heal, bridge cultural divides and inspire peace.
Working together to empower Tibetan women through sport will prepare them to affect change in their communities and to become international sports ambassadors of peace and tolerance.
Funding went towards the costs of the Tibet Womens Soccer program to promote the cause of a Free Tibet through Soccer. The funds will cover the costs of 9 school teams, training for 20 Tibetan coaches, a girls soccer camp and a national exhibition.
