DWFC has been working in Pakistan for over 21 years, focusing on social change through football.
Who We Are
DWFC has been working in Pakistan for over 18 years, focusing on social change through football. We do this through well-planned and comprehensive programs in health, education and mainly in sports. Diya Women Football Club (DWFC) is the pioneer of Women Football in Pakistan started in 2002 and recognised by Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) in 2006. It’s Founder and General Secretary, Sadia Sheikh, is the country’s only FIFA certified National Football Administrator and First Women certified Match Commissioner of Pakistan from Asian Football Confederation.
Our overall goal is the empowerment of women and girls from poor, different social and cultural background and marginalised communities, leading to improvement in their lives and livelihoods through Football. The Club’s mission is to help create an environment where Pakistani women footballers can flourish and showcase their talent and groom them for future international women footballers.
Why Women And Girls
DWFC focuses on the empowerment of women and girls because they are disproportionately affected by poverty and discrimination; and suffer abuse and violations in the realisation of their rights, entitlements and access and control over resources. Also, experience shows that, when equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities overcome poverty, marginalisation and social injustice.
