Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Maitrayana Charity Foundation
  • About Organization:Adolescent girls (10 – 16 year) participate in sessions (duration up to ten months) in the community. They play netball and learn life skills from young female coaches – role models - who have been participants in the programme. This is where the journey starts for girls learning to play netball in a community that often discourages girls playing netball. Their presence in public playgrounds starts challenging gender stereotypes. Family and community members see girls in leadership, developing skills,taking decisions, managing themselves and each other and having fun! YPI Pragati participants play a netball league in their community and Udaan, a city-wise tournament for community teams.
