Girls in the Game
Help Get More Girls in the Game
Investing in girls creates a ripple effect that carries through to her family, community, and her future. Girls who play sports improve academically, increase confidence and make healthier choices. Yet globally, less than 10% of the "world's game" are female.
SWB programs break barriers to get more girls in the game from all cultural backgrounds, supporting them to reach their goals on and off the field. Let's get more girls in the game!
"I don't know what type of person I would be if FSF (SWB) weren't part of my life. I feel that its influence has formed me to be who I am. To be part of the leadership council, to feel the desire to help, to be with the girls in the program, to share with them, and to listen to their desires and dreams. Soccer Without Borders hasn't changed my life, Soccer Without Borders formed my life."
