Happy New Years from Yuwa!  I hope this update finds you well and like Yuwa, ready to make 2012 a successful and rewarding year.  Here is latest exciting Yuwa news from the ground in India and accross the organization.

- Jeb Brovsky, US soccer star, visited Yuwa in December

US soccer star and Peace Pandemic founder, Jeb Brovsky, recently completed a two day camp with Yuwa in December. The camp instructed the Yuwa members about soccer techniques, as well as educating the players about health, hygiene and physical fitness.

-Yuwa Holiday Event 2011

Thank-you for all who attended this year's Yuwa holiday event on December 22nd. The event was a success, as we saw record attendance and had over 30 businesses involved in supporting the cause through the event! It was a great night of casino gaming, silent auction bidding and conversation among attendees.

-Professional Women Soccer Players Visit Yuwa Villages

Joanna Lohman and Lianne Sanderson from Joli Academy traveled to Jharkhand to visit Yuwa in month of January. Lohman and Sanderson founded the JoLi Academy, a for-profit business that has a philanthropic bent. They are interested in spreading their talents and learning from Yuwa's success.

Once again, Yuwa wishes you a Happy New Year!

Here's to a great 2012!





What a great year for Yuwa!  Because of all of Yuwa's supporters, Yuwa has seen tremendous growth of it's programs and organization.  On a monthly basis, Yuwa programs now directly reach over 300 children and teenagers in rural India.  Over the course of the past year, Yuwa has been awarded a Nike Gamechangers Grant-which will result in a Yuwa dedicated soccer and academic facility, gained permanent GlobalGiving Membership and has been highlighted in a variety of publications such as Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Sports Illustrated!

We appreciate your continued support and hope to continue this momentum to finish the year strong.  On December 22nd, we will be hosting our annual holiday fundraiser at Edina Country Club. It will be a holiday-themed party with live music, food and casino activities.  We hope you will join the fun!

On behalf of the Yuwa team- THANK-YOU!
