Cindy ParlowFormer American World Cup winner and two-time Olympic gold medalist Cindy Parlow has brought her love and passion for football all the way to India. Parlow is currently in New Delhi, conducting a camp for young Indian girls who aspire to become footballers and believes that there is great potential in the Indian women's football team.

Parlow is in the Indian capital to train 120 girls as a part of collaboration between an Indian NGO named Cequin, YUWA -- an initiative to empower girls through football and Goal4Girls, an America-based NGO.

While Parlow left her job as a manager of one of America's best women's football clubs to teach kids in India, young American girls from the NGOs took up odd jobs like washing cars and sales to raise funds on their own to make the training programme possible in India.
