Gender equality! We ought to learn it from Champai, a remote village of Mizoram, which is silently taking a firm stride towards establishing gender equality through Golden Baby Leagues.
The Young Legends League (YLL) Golden Baby Leagues started with mixed-gender matches, and it had a magical response from parents in the locality. At the end of the season, the highest scorer was an 8-year-old girl, says a report.

YLL Golden Baby Leagues, the brainchild of 8one Foundation was one of the first Baby League programs across the country. It has been started in partnership with the Mizoram Football Association. Over the last two years, they had unearthed some talented kids who were, in the process, roped in by eminent academies in the likes of Bengaluru FC, Reliance Foundation Young Champs, Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools – taking Indian Football Forward Together.
The matches are organised on Saturday so that the academic curriculum of the kids is not affected.
Note that, the Golden Baby Leagues project was started by All India Football Federation (AIFF) in 2018 with the aim of nurturing a new generation of boys and girls who start playing football at a very young age.
