Project

Supported by a grant from PWCF in 2018, over 150 girls played more than 1,500 hours of football. Not only improving skills, health and fitness, they also found a safe space to make new friends, let of steam, boost their confidence and have fun.

What do you like about BIGKID Girls’ Football?

“I like coming to Girls Football because it boosts my confidence.”

“Everyone’s energy is amazing”

“It allows me to be me.”

“It's an opportunity for me to do what I love and I just feel like being in an environment full of people just as focused and as determined as you makes you work harder to be the best person and player you can be.”

I was raised in an area in South London where trouble and crime were always close by, and at one point I was temporarily excluded from school. I was also bullied, which lead me to self-harming as a way of coping. I am feeling a lot more confident than when I first joined and I am really proud of how far I’ve come. Thanks to Bigkid Foundation, I am now excited about the future!
