SPORTS FOR PEACE, SPORTS FOR EMPOWERMENT!
Parcham’s football program was initiated to bring together Muslim and non Muslim girls together in one team as teammates, building trust and friendships. The football training is interspersed with perspective building in line with our vision statement.
Starting in the neighbourhood of Mumbra (a ghetto of Muslims on the outskirts of Mumbai) we have expanded to Mumbai city where we train girls in the eastern and western suburbs. We have reached out to nearly a 1000 girls and hosted tournaments based on a spirit of cooperation rather than competition.
Our goal is to establish a football academy for Dalit, Muslim and Adivasi girls.
