Rose Gastler

Education Director at Yuwa , Ranchi
Yuwa is an internationally acclaimed non-governmental organization that uses football (soccer) and education to put girls in charge of their own futures since 2009. Yuwa is registered as a Trust in India and as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the USA. Yuwa is based in villages in the Ranchi district of Jharkhand, where girls are especially at risk of dropping out of school, child marriage, gender-related violence, and human trafficking. Through the creation of football teams, girls gain leadership skills and confidence, continue their education, and are less likely to be forced into child marriage. Here, teamwork is a powerful force to promote health, education and improved livelihoods among the most important agents of change—young women.
 Almost all of Yuwa’s external representation is done by the girls themselves.
Yuwa School for Girls began in June 2015 in Hutup village, Jharkhand. The vision of our school is: Every girl’s future in her own hands. Our mission is to enable students to reach their full academic potential, develop critical and creative thinking skills, and become compassionate, empowered leaders in their communities. 

Yuwa has been featured in Al-Jazeera, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Bloomberg Businessweek, BBC, Sports Illustrated, Hindustan Times, Times of India, ABC News, and other media in India and internationally.
