Peace Studies graduate founds successful NGO to help girls in Nepal change their lives through sport
Sarah Van Vooren, who graduated from International Peace Studies in 2012, is featured in an article in The Guardian which tells the story of ‘Atoot’, an NGO she established alongside Mashreeb Aryal to empower girls in Nepal through football. The project is based in Kapilvastu, a district which borders India, and uses sport to provide positive role models and encourage female education and enfranchisement in a region which still has a high rate of child marriage.
