It was a pleasure to welcome back Jackie Skinner and her mother Becky. Jackie is one of the main coordinators for the organisation US based organisation Goals for Girls, whose mission is:
To use soccer to teach young women life skills on how to be agents of change, in their own lives and in their communities.
Last year’s program was a great success culminating in a new year party at WIN’s shelter. This year we hope to arrange more interesting activities for the young female soccer players who will be visiting us. Our goal is to inform these young women of the complex and diverse problems faced by Indian women and how Women In Need addresses them.
