Ruth Akao

Ruth joined the Premier Skills programme in 2021.

She is involved in community initiatives offering girls an opportunity to play football and stay in school. Working with other coaches, she established a charity organisation called Women in Football Uganda.

Learning about inclusion during the programme inspired me and other colleagues to start a community-based organisation ‘Women in Football Uganda’. We provide free training sessions to girls between the age of six and 17 years. We have registered over 35 girls into the programme and two of them recently finished their Primary 7 and were awarded full football scholarships. We have impacted over 100 girls through soccer clinics and girls’ leagues in Kampala.
