This coming fall in eastern Chad, iACT will organize the first-ever Darfur United Women’s Team (DUWT), an all-refugee soccer team representing Darfur, Sudan, and the women who tirelessly hold the community and their future together. Building on the success of the Darfur United Men’s Team, the Women’s Team will give the women of Darfur the opportunity to train, compete, and represent their people on the field and bring new possibilities for women and girls in their community, where few exist today.
The first-ever Women’s Team Training Camp in October 2018 will launch the formation of the team. Female players from eight refugee camps in eastern Chad who currently serve as coaches for the Refugees United Soccer Academy, and young women with some experience who are interested in joining the team, will come together to participate in a week-long soccer training camp with expert iACT soccer coaches and trainers.
iACT is seeking sponsors, partners, and volunteers to be part of this extraordinary and unparalleled opportunity. Opportunities include but are not limited to philanthropic support, media and gear partnerships, DUWT outreach and advocacy, and DUWT player sponsorship.
Darfur United Women’s Team also needs uniforms, training kits, soccer supplies, and stipends for travel, food, and housing during the camp.
