World Literacy of Canada could not have celebrated International Women’s Day this past March 8th in any better way than by hosting their 2nd annual women’s Kabaddi Tournament in the holy city of Varanasi, just seconds away from their office on the steps to the Ganges.
This tournament is a perfect symbol of the incredible work WLC has done to promote education and empowerment for women in the area – not long ago these fierce females were decked out in saris and relegated mainly to the home, now they’re fighting for glory on a kabaddi field in front of thousands of onlookers!
Spirits were high and the players really put on a show, what dynamos!
World Literacy of Canada is a real force to be reckoned with – they literally are “turning the page on poverty” through literacy and their passion for promoting play among women who never dared to dream but who are now reaching for the stars.
World Literacy of Canada hasn’t just created a better world for women in India, they’ve opened the door to a universe of possibility.
