Women footballers in Ghana battle tough training and working conditions for a coveted spot on the national team. But for competitors like Vivian Donkor, it’s all worth it.
Vivian Donkor is a goalkeeper for Hassacass Ladies FC-Ghana, the three-time champions in Ghana’s women’s premier league.
Her dream is to one day play for the national team.
She may have the skills.
But there’s a lot still standing in her way.
She works two jobs, and the team has to deal with sub-standard facilities.
These are typical of the challenges many female footballers in Ghana face as they strive for glory.
