During FIFA Women’s World Cup,
One Goal joined the #GirlsCan campaign

To promote the message that:

When #GirlsCan join in and play football, everybody wins.

When #GirlsCan play, they can dream of bigger future for themselves.

When #GirlsCan participate in sport, they get to be children—to learn, play and laugh.

When #GirlsCan join, both boys and girls can learn teamwork transforming gender norms and promoting equality.

When #GirlsCan discover their power on the field, they unlock their potential off the field.

When #GirlsCan play, everybody wins!

Girls and boys—young Syrian refugees—in Zaatari refugee camp and Al Sareeh took part in a football tournament, organised by the Asian Football Development Project and the United Nation’s High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), to mark World Refugee Day 2014.

  • Eight girls and boys teams, a total of 1500 participants, participated!
  • The tournament  also included support activities to help the young refugees respond to the challenges
    posed by their displacement, and the impact of the conflict in Syria on their lives.
