Eighteen tribal girls started practicing in the farms of Ormanjhi near Ranchi and because an American dared they ended up playing football in Spain. Franz Gastler, a US national founded Yuwa, an NGO, in 2009 to use football to promote health, education and a shot at a better life, but his unending efforts got India talking about the U-14 team.
They finished two international tournaments — Donostic Cup in Basque and Gasteiz Cup in Vitoria Gasteiz — in Spain last month. Among 10 teams, 200 girls, Yuwa won third prize at Gasteiz Cup.

With little help from the Jharkhand State Football Association (JSFA), Yuwa has done what even the state government failed to do in 13 years, since Jharkhand’s formation in 2000. HT has followed their efforts and was the first to report their inspiring story in 2011, when 3 Yuwa girls were selected for a tournament in Sri Lanka.
