What Would You Fight For?

Nov. 9, 2011

In Nepal, millions of girls suffer in extreme poverty, deprived of even the most basic human rights. Many are abandoned, abused, or forced into child labor. University of Notre Dame women's soccer player Lindsay Brown and her 2010 national champion teammates are doing more than just hoping for a better life for Nepali girls; they're helping them to achieve it.

Through a series of campus fundraisers, the women's soccer team sponsored the education of several girls at the Nepal's Kopila Valley School. Fighting to make an even bigger impact, Lindsay traveled to Surkhet over the summer to volunteer as a teacher, as well as to establish the school's girl's soccer team. Their efforts truly demonstrate the power of athletics to educate, to inspire, and to build community.
