GGWCup Bangkok - All teams blew us away all day

GGWCUP Bangkok is over and we have a winner - and in many ways all of the teams are winners today. I say that after every tournament, but am serious. These teams of women around the world are coming together to speak up and take action. Its magic and I cry everytime, it just touches my heart & soul so deeply. Today teams playing and connecting are coming from all over Thailand. Talking air pollution, gender equality and education as a big driver for change. Bangkok’s tournament is where we have had the most teams of teachers, heard curious and playful conversations, and had a great level of dance on and off the field.

A quality education for every single child. Gender equality in the classroom. Higher-ed options that don't break the bank.  

If these all sound like the trappings of a fantasy land, it's because most countries still struggle to provide them in some way, shape, or form - even the rich ones.

Team: Play Onside

We are Burmese migrant women living and working in Mae Sot a city on the Thai-Burma border. We all work as coaches and educators in PlayOnside, an organization that uses football to promote gender equality among the Burmese community displaced in Thailand. For all of us, playing football was something that we could not imagine when we were kids. We have started coaching and playing 2 years ago and become a great role model of the change in our communities. We want to join this event to promote the goal of Gender Equality in the field of sport.

We believe that together we are stronger!
