CORONEL BOGADO, PARAGUAY

A promise made over 25
years ago is being fulfilled.

A promise made over 25 years ago is being fulfilled.

Our efforts are fulfilling a promise made in 1991 by Walter Pratte, Co-founder of Girls Soccer Worldwide™, where he played semi-pro.  While living in this small rural community, he was greatly impacted by the compassion and love of the people in Coronel Bogado, Paraguay as he was given so much by those who have very little.  The living conditions had his attention and because of this, upon leaving, he gave a commitment to the community.  

Walter moved to the US shortly after and over many years of coaching he was able to see the equality in sports and witnessed the benefits gained by girls who played the sport he loved. 

He returned to Coronel Bogado in 2015 to see poverty was still prominent and the lack of equality for girls was even more evident.  It was clear the commitment he made prior was needed and it was time to create that path he promised.  He returned  to the US with a vision that would empower Female Student Athletes, locally and abroad.  In 2016, our first Ambassador led trip was on it's way!

If he was able to make a way for himself, he would return to give back creating a path for others to do the same.
