Video- Ana La’abah: I am a girl and a football player | Project engaged girls from Jordanian and Syrian backgrounds living in the north of Jordan in football training

Jordan has welcomed over a million Syrian refugees since the beginning of the neighboring conflict. In some instances, this rapid influx has led to tensions between refugees and host communities. As one way to address this while empowering girls at the same time, the project ‘Ana La’abah’ engaged 96 girls from Jordanian and Syrian backgrounds living in the north of Jordan in football training. The football training gave the girls new confidence, widened their social circle and allowed them to build lasting friendships across dividing lines.
