Info about the Konye-Urgench Girls Basketball Club

There is little recreational activities for students or teachers in the city of Konye-Urgench. There are few soccer programs but fitness and health programs are virtually nil. Girls especially do not have access to sports or fitness programs. Most stay near home and do little. Additionally, there are no social programs for girls, no Girl Scouts, Campfire Girls, no forums on women's issues, or seminars for girls. This project proposes initiating a Girls Basketball team. The team would be a part of the larger Youth Resource Center and the Community Health, Fitness and Educational Program. The goal of the Fitness and Educational Program is to help residents improve their lives physically and intellectually and strengthen civil associations. The community is requesting assistance in purchasing the sporting good equipment. The community will contribute the basketball arena where the team will play.
