La Alianza,Guatemala – new girls football team

 

Compass Children’s charity together with Football Action are funding and supporting the girl’s football team at La Alianza, Guatemala.  The team is made up from the residents of La Alianza who work with severely traumatised girls who, in many cases, have been subject to sexual abuse, trafficking and other serious crimes.

Football and sport are a great outlet for releasing pressure, encouraging the girls to work as a team, allowing them to start to build healthy minds and bodies.

The Ministry of Culture and sport in Guatemala is providing a coach for the first year of the project and the girls started training earlier this year
