Atoot is a Sports-for-Development (S4D) non-profit which uses daily football (soccer), education, life-skills workshops and positive mentorship to educate and empower girls in rural Nepal. Founded based on the need for safe and empowering spaces for girls that face inequality, discrimination and injustice in Nepal. Atoot in Nepali means “unbreakable” – much like the girls we engage with. Our mission is to avail girls sportive and educative opportunities as a catalyst for empowerment and holistic development. Working with girls aged 5 to 18, Atoot strongly believes there are endless possibilities when you give girls a platform to have a choice and a voice. Through daily programming and community engagement, Atoot provides a safe and empowering space where girls can come together in a progressive environment to play, learn and surround themselves with positive peers, enabling them to discover their inner self worth.
