On March 20 she organized a women’s soccer tournament for 120 teenage girls from Smederevo, Serbia. The project partner, soccer field ‘Petlic’, provided the venue and a sound system for free and invited three volunteer referees. Besides promoting healthy lifestyle and sports among girls, the event aimed to raise money to send one participant to a soccer summer camp in Zlatibor.
‘Crowds cheered and proud parents took photos of their daughters playing. The team spirit was incredible and, of course, team-mates quickly became friends with each other,’ says Dunja.
The FLEX alumna believes that investing in the girls’ future based on their talents and interests will contribute to the community’s development greatly. Therefore, she plans to continue promoting women’s sports in her area.
