Here are some photos from last weekend’s #WEcoach Girls' Futsal Tournament organised by The WeUnited Project.

This tournament was the end result of the ‘Mahila Coaching Initiative’ which saw 6 young women (all players themselves`) successfully complete a 3 day coaching workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal. Over a period of 5 weeks they dedicated their time and expertise as coaches to provide opportunities for young girls to get involved with and play. They coached their respective teams with intensity and passion.

He is usually depicted as a man with four arms, riding a white elephant . Indra Jatra also marks the beginning of the month-long festival season of autumn. The festival begins with the erection of a wooden pole made of pine at Basantapur Square in front of the old Hanuman Dhaka Palace.

Damnoen Saduak. Ratachaburi Province, Thailand.

Damnoen Saduak, located about 100km southwest of Bangkok, is home to Thailand’s most famous floating market. It is the straightest and longest canal in Thailand. The canal was built as a means to link the Mae Klong River with Tha Chin River in order to support transportation and trade. Taking over two years to dig, it was eventually finished under the reign of King Rama V in 1968. Now considered a tourist trap, the floating market is still home to a vast array of people who’s livelihoods depend on the canal.
