Australian cricketers paid a visit to Yuwa,an NGO based in the city, that provides a platform through team sport for young women to gain confidence to make a changein their world.     

The players took time out from their preparations for the third Test of the Tour of India, which begins here on Thursday, to engage with some inspiring young girls who hail from Jharkhand.   

The girls who are part of Yuwa are rewriting their script- and it all starts with sport and education.     

Australian players spent time in small groups hearing first hand from the girls the challenges they have faced to getto where they are now with the help of Yuwa.   

All 81 students from the school then gathered to share their experiences in sport and how it has benefited them before engaging in some light-hearted competition between the players and the senior girls' soccer team. The event was managed in partnership with the Australian High Commission in India.
