When girls know their worth, they're limitless. 5 out of 10 girls in Jharkhand drop out of school and become child brides. But not these girls.

Happy Durga Puja and Navratri from Yuwa! 
Indra was disappointed because she forgot her 'weapon' at home. .

International Day of the Girl? Everyday is day of the girl at Yuwa! From football to school to workshops, Yuwa creates pathways for girls to become empowered decision makers and leaders in their own communities. In rural Jharkhand, where 6 out of 10 girls drop out of school and become child brides, the young women in Yuwa act as powerful role models for hundreds of young girls. #dayofthegirl #internationaldayofthegirl

"In my previous school, in one class there were 50 to 100 children and just one teacher. I was going to school to hang out with my friends. I never focused on my studies. I never asked questions to any teachers because I felt scared.

But when I came to Yuwa School my life started to change. In my class, there are only 8 students and one teacher who also acts as a friend. I started to see so many dreams for my future and having interest in studying. The best part is that I am learning and speaking in English." -Hema, 8th standard Yuwa School student

Team 'Little Sunrise' plays through the setting sun. 
In case you were wondering: yes, the marker painted by the girls does say "little sunrice". #yuwafootball #yuwaindia #football #football4good #girlempowerment #girlsplaytoo #girlfootball #ngo #jharkhand

"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." -Frederick Douglas. We believe this at Yuwa, and create daily opportunities for reading in school with library periods for each standard. Our English classes often include reading novels that challenge, inspire, and entertain our students. What book would you recommend to the Yuwa girls?

Wrestler "Vinesh Phogat" laughes her way to victory during morning assembly at Yuwa School. Yuwa students love to hear stories of athletes' successes--especially when they're Indian women! #vineshphogat

All that is gold does not glitter! Yuwa School moved to a new (but temporary) campus this year. The students and teachers have been transforming the new space into an exciting and safe environment for our school.
