8,000 kilometres away, yet so close

Yuwa is an NGO operating in Jharkhand, one of India’s poorest regions. Since its creation in 2009, they have been working to fight child marriage, human trafficking, and illiteracy.

Together with Real Sociedad, we started a coach training programme for a group of female students in Yuwa in 2016. Olarain collaborated from the start to facilitate accommodation (there have now been more than three visits to the city through the Donosti Cup) and helps to do everything possible to guarantee that the training project is a success each year.

For us, Yuwa represents the spirit of Olarain: the hospitality and future of our young people, those close to home and those living 8,000 kilometres away.
