A big win for the girls, and a celebration of the Mobile Sports Library! This girl's team, from Bhalukia Palong High School, lifted their first football trophy as winners of the Cox’s Bazar district championship — and even made it into newspaper headlines.
This win means so much, because playing sport has never been easy or safe for Bangladeshi girls. Their victory is the result of hard work, dedication, and training through the project.
Now more than half a year on the road, the Mobile Sports Library is reaching Bangladeshi children in seven schools in the Cox's Bazar district.
Following in the footsteps of the Bangladesh women’s team, who won the South Asian Football Federation championship this year, the girls from Bhalukia Palong High School are an inspiration to their communities. And girls everywhere.
