    I’m raising funds so an Argentinian lady can join us on the mountain.


    Josefina is an Argentinian role model for women and girls in her country. Futbol is everywhere in Argentina but it’s considered a male sport; women and girls are discouraged from playing.

    As part of Futbol Militante, which gives women and girls the opportunity and support to play futbol, Josefina is tackling the huge barriers to women playing sport; the poverty, lack of infrastructure and the perception of sport as ‘masculine’ are all factors holding women and girls back.

    Without help with funding Josefina won’t be able to join the trek up Mount Kilimanjaro.

    Will you help her climb the mountain and inspire a generation of female Maradonas?
