Emeldah, Dailess and Maria in the Zambia National Women’s team

Emeldah Musonda, Dailess Sakala and Maria joined two other BCSA players Kabange and Mulayi in the Zambia National Women’s team. The trio were selected as part of the team that played against South Africa, Kenya, Botswana and Malawi.

The 3 girls are also part of the first Breakthrough Chiparamba girls’ team that was formed in 2005.

Dailess Sakala was part of the Zambia Delegation that participated in the Football for Hope Festival 2010 that took place in South Africa. Maria has been the BCSA girls’ team first choice goalkeeper since 2009. Emeldah and Dailess were also selected as part of the Zambia under 20 women’s national team in 2011 and 2012.


Emeldah, Dailess and Maria were part of the first BCSA girl’s football team that participated in the 2011 Gothia Cup.

The Gothia Cup is the world’s largest youth football tournament for boys and girls and takes place annually in Sweden. They are also facilitators and trained peer leaders and have been involved in various BCSA projects and events.

Specifically they have participated in the organisation of the following BCSA projects and tournaments:

  • Zambia German Japan Friendship Tournament
  • World Water Day Festivals
  • Woman’s Day events
  • Football for Hope Festival
  • BCSA Ligie Yathu

We are proud of their hard work and achievements and wish them all the best.

In moving forward, BCSA will utilise and involve the 3 girls in the BCSA Girls Empowerment through Football Project. We envision that they will be utilised as role models, trainers, coaches and facilitators in the BCSA GEF Project.
