Atoot is a Football for Good non profit located in south Nepal. Its programming is a consistent, multifaceted and interconnected programme that educates & empowers rural Nepali girls by availing equal sporting and educational opportunities which focuses on long term capacity building and holistic development of at-risk marginalised girls and their communities.

We avail daily football (soccer) sessions, extra educational classes, life skills workshops & community engagement to educate & empower. All activities are interlinked & used as a platform to enable girls to develop a feminist community which smashes barriers & challenges societal norms, empowering them to discover greater knowledge & sense of entitlement to their rights by building their individual & team capacity.

By providing safe and inclusive spaces/environment for girls to find their inner potential and self-worth, our programmes enables them to have the confidence to break the barriers of social expectation.
