Hope Powell signs for Football Action
 Women's Football News 7 Oct 2015
 
Former England Women's football manager Hope Powell CBE has ​signed up as an official ambassador for ​international ​sport and education charity Football Action. 
 
Hope, who also played for England over 60 times, will help promote the charity's work in Honduras, Ethiopia, Kenya and now Guatemala. As a women's football advocate, Hope will focus on supporting Football Action's projects that encourage and inspire girls to play football.
 
Football Action is a sport and education charity​ ​which provides football pitches, coaches and equipment to schools and local communities in developing countries, to encourage education among children and young people.
 
Hope, who was the first ever full-time England Women's manager, said: "It's great to be involved in such an important cause. Football is a powerful tool for inspiring confidence in children around the globe and encouraging them to realise positive futures. It is especially important that young girls in developing countries, many of whom are denied the same opportunities as boys, receive the chance to participate in sport, access education and find a place to be safe.
 
"Football Action recognises the challenges that many girls in underprivileged communities face, and therefore provide accessible opportunities to play football within the confines of a safe environment. I look forward to joining the Football Action team."
 
James Dillon, Football Action​ trustee and founder​, said: "​We​ are​ thrilled to have Hope ​onside; she is a fantastic role model and example to women around the world. We can't wait to begin working with her to help give more underprivileged girls opportunities in sport and education."
 
Football Action is launching a new exclusively female project in Guatemala with La Alianza to provide local girls with a football coach, equipment and regular training sessions at a safe location. The project will also provide private transport because many of the girls have been victims of sexual trafficking and are at high risk of abduction, violence or death.
