The Indian Yuwa team will be the second team invited by Donosti Cup in its 25th anniversary

11 MAY.

 

We can now announce that the second invited team by Donosti Cup through its solidary programme “Donosti Cup in the World” will be Yuwa-India.


As many of you will remember, this team took part in the tournament three years ago and currently they are well known by been one of the teams that left a considerable mark.
Yuwa is an organization which through its social programme, uses football as a social tool with the objective of improving Jharkhand girls’ quality live.


When the young American Franz Gastler, founder of the organization, travelled to India with the objective of writing his thesis, he decided to stay there in order to help those girls from the region who were forced to get married with the age of 13-14. The fact of being part of this organization helped the girls to feel more protected.


Their participation in the tournament in 2013 had such a huge impact in India’s media that nowadays the Government, the mediums and the University have an interest for this girl’s story and encourage them to make their educational dreams come true.


Thanks to the social and economic support the girls have received from the local agents, some new classrooms have been built were the children can study and grow up. Moreover, thanks to this initiative, more than 50 girls have the opportunity of studying in a foreign country.


Organization’s next objective is to build a sportive educational campus for more than 300 players who are currently involved in an educational programme based on sports and mainly football.


This year, from the team which participated in 2013 will come three girls as coaches. For the rest of the players it will be the first time to experience the Donosti Cup in the G-14 category.


During their visit to San Sebastian, the founder Franz Gastler will give a lecture on Tuesday 5th of July at 18:00h though the Basque Country University’s Summer Courses.


From the Donosti Cup we want to give them a warm welcome to the 25th anniversary!
