• The ability to set goals, to show up and give
    your best to find out where your talents can take you
    is one of the greatest gifts we have.

  • Soccer teaches life skills to come back
    from all of the roadblocks our journey’s encounter.
    It gives girls and boys a sense of purpose.

  • A soccer ball inspires happiness,
    creativity and friendships.
    The Women’s World Cup
    sends a positive global message
    that girls are capable and important.

  • The World Cup brings
    glimmers of hope to those who are
    silenced and an awareness
    or potential awakening to
    those who force the controls.

  • Girls and women are often victims.
    They have less access to get out
    of desperate situations.
    Soccer can radically change
    their sense of self worth and focus.
