As a child I never had the opportunity to play soccer, I had no interest. I did not know soccer is such a powerful tool for empowerment until I joined VAP. I am a skills coach and i get inspired everyday by just seeing how I am impacting adolescent girls’ lives through soccer. My story is about how I use soccer to create a safe space for girls to freely discuss sexual and reproductive health matters affecting them. Most girls from the slums have little/inaccurate information and knowledge on these issues. Soccer helps these girls acquire life skills and develop resilience and can overcome challenges they face.
