City: Dai Hai
Country: South Vietnam
Dates: August 2010 - present

Background: Hung Tran High School in Dai Hai, Vietnam serves hundreds of children from the lush surrounding farmlands. Community members recently started a football program for boys, but fell short of resources to start a girls' league. The girls' passion for football runs high, and they could often be seen playing pickup games barefoot in their school uniforms on the field without nets.

Activities: In August 2010, Seva Football collaborated with the Hung Tran School to start a football league for girls. We distributed cleats, shinguards, socks and jerseys to several dozen players. Volunteers from our organization coached for several weeks; we also recruited local residents to continue coaching the players. Currently we are renovating a field where both students of the school and area teams will be able to play.

Goals: In the near future, we hope to finish renovating the field, recruit more players and start a House League that plays regular matches.

How you can help: Our primary need is equipment, especially cleats. We also seek funding that will enable us to build the field and procure equipment. Please visit our support page to learn more about how to support our efforts, or contact us if you have more questions.
