BARCELONA has become home to Spain’s first and only all-female cricket team.
Established for Pakistani teenagers who emigrated to Catalunya, the team was set up for the girls “to promote their self-esteem, to favour social inclusion and their empowerment”.
Based in the Besòs neighbourhood, the team is made up entirely of immigrants.
The scheme, known as Project Ma’Isah, was set up to cover an “invisible group”.
Founder Aïna Coscollolas said: “Sports allow us to to promote a series of values like group dynamics, respect, equality, cooperative dynamics, responsibility.”
