Do you know Mariam S, Amina, Sarah, Christine, Esse, Mwanaidi, Fatume and Mariam C?

“We saw how much fun the men and children where having when they played soccer, and we decided to start our own soccer club” Says Mariam Mpaata, team captain of the Soccer Divas.

They made it about standing united to heal and improve their community.

When we asked the ubercool drummer from the Danish band L.I.G.A to be a Global Goals World Cup ambassador, we could never have dreamed of the profound way she would impact our project. She showed up for what was just meant to be a regular photo shoot, doing a bit of PR for us, and left with the idea to compose our anthem.
