Tibet Womens Football (Dehradun, Uttarakhand)
In 2011 the first women-only football training was offered in the Tibetan community in India.
The idea was for women to be able to connect with each other and other
female athletes around the world, and to use the sport as a loudspeaker for their
concerns as female refugees. In the meantime Tibetan women’s football has developed a programme of professional training in health and team building that is second to none. The result is groundbreaking: football is the first sport that will have a Tibetan
women’s national team. Besides that the entire organization is supported by women
and for women and is inspiring international attention.
