Changing the Game for Girls in India

BY ISH JHAJ
@ VOL 28 ON JUN 13, 2013

Ish Jhaj was always a bit of a tomboy as a young girl, and football (the one you play with your foot) has always been her game. Now she's begun organizing a girls soccer program in a rural suburb of Punjab, India. What the girls lacked in coordination, they more than made up for in heart, and now Ish has put together several mini leagues, and has donated shoes and clothing to the region.
