Girls United is a nonprofit organisation that sets-up football schools for girls in low-income areas and recruits volunteers from around the world to coach at the academies. We aim to use football as a tool to empower the girls of the local community by going beyond the technical and tactical to develop confident leaders. Equally, we facilitate genuine and profound cultural exchanges between local coaches, foreign coaches and the communities with the aim of providing everyone involved with a unique, enriching experience. Our vision is to make a sustainable impact in rural communities through a cultural exchange that is based on values of equality and inclusion. We seek to enrich the lives of locals through promoting gender equality in sport, boosting the economy and improving physical health.
