20 year old Saba is one of 4 siblings in a low-income orthodox Muslim family in Mumbai, where she watched all her female cousins get married at 18.

Saba’s resilience & talent got her selected to represent OSCAR at YFC Rurka Kalan’s 2017 football tournament in Punjab, after which a lady coach from OSCAR, Nagma, paid her parents a visit to persuade them to let Saba play.

Hearing about Saba’s desire and achievements, her mother who herself had never had the privilege of education or opportunities, started to stand by her, lending Saba the confidence to challenge her community’s traditional mindset. She also helped Saba mobilize children from her community by encouraging other parents to send their children for football practice.

Playquity, Assam

Anjona Majhi.png

Anjona belongs to an underprivileged community in the Balijan Tea estate Assam, India. She lost her mother at 5 and was brought up by her father, who is a tea estate labourer. Circumstances forced her to start supporting her family right after school with entry-level sales roles across Bangalore & Dibrugarh.


Her life transformed when she was introduced to Ultimate Frisbee in 2021 through the Playquity program. She fought gender bias in her own community and a lot of times from her own family members including derogatory remarks about the girls' sports attire, her lack of involvement in domestic chores and the constant pressure to get married.  Yet she persevered, she had bigger dreams not for herself but for her community.


She helped expand the Chabua operations from 1 to 3 locations and also helped onboard 8 more coaches in Playquity sites across the country. Today Anjona is a coach at Playquity, and leads 2 cohorts in nearby villages, impacting about 30 girls. Her influence has spread across neighbouring communities in Manipur and Meghalaya too, where she travels to help underprivileged girls build confidence and lead in their community.


Based on her demonstrated leadership, she was recently upgraded to be KickOff Solutions' second recipient of a 3-year coaching-academy seed capital.
