Al-Tahadi women’s football team was founded in May 2001 by a group of young women who shared one outstanding passion - to play football. Despite negative public views and social restrictions, the Al-Tahadi team thrives thanks to the amazing dedication of its players and supportive volunteers. ALTAHDY (Arabic meaning challenges) team brings together players from different regions of Sudan, including zones of major conflict such as South Sudan, Darfur, the Nuba mountains, Nyala, Al-Fashir, Al-Damazine and Kadogli. The team emphasizes harmony and unity, while still recognizing the cultural and religious differences among its members.
"Our vision is to encourage women in Africa in general to pursue their highest limits, and to motivate girls in [Sudan] to stand against gender inequality and change the public view regarding women’s football!"
