Scotland team host Achievement in Sport project
 Women's Football News 27 Jul 2011
The Scottish women's squad played host to a group of girls from the 'Achievements through Sport' project that were at Toryglen to learn about the positive message of achievement from Anna Signeul's team. 
The girls watched on as the women's team were put through their paces before captain Gemma Fay introduced the squad and led a question and answer session. The 'Achievement through Sport' pilot project, run by Ikon International, aims to bridge social barriers using sport.
The project works with girls aged between 11 and 18 from two diverse social backgrounds in Paisley in order to develop confidence, share experiences and associate a sporting activity with a sense of achievement and having fun.
Nataliia Hinde, owner of Ikon International Associates Ltd, said: "I truly believe that all young people have talent and we must find the right way to release this and channel it positively. Sport is excellent for this and I was so pleased when we were invited along to see the squad in training. Some of the squad came to one of our creative workshops last week and really loved it so maybe we will do more with the national team in future.
"Today is all about the girls from Paisley who have been inspired by the dedication and commitment of the girl footballers and the coaching staff and other support. It is fantastic.
"Where the girls live in Paisley there are a number of initiatives for young men, including football leagues, but the involvement of girls from different communities has been under appreciated. We are doing something different that is ground breaking and we are happy to be associated with the Scottish FA."
Gemma Fay added: "Anything that can get more young teenage girls involved in sport while also teaching them other life skills is very positive and I fully support the work of this project in Paisley and hope that this pilot can be rolled out nationwide."
