On 3rd June, Play for Change (PFC) and Pro League hosted their third annual ‘Schools Cup’ tournament, a youth football tournament that was held at the Eneco Stadium of Oud-Heverlee Leuven in Belgium. The tournament provided over 300 children aged 11 - 12 years old with the experience of a ‘day in the life of a professional footballer’ whilst promoting values of social inclusion and fair play through football.

She tells us about her experiences of sport, the reaction of men and women in sport and the importance of sport programmes to inspire children. Bonita has also visited Nepal several times, attempting to climb some of the world’s largest mountains there. Nepal experiences mass gender inequality on a global scale and Play for change, through its sport programme, has set up women empowerment projects.
