Help In Setting Up The Boccia Nationals for persons with disabilities

Greetings friends,

Greetings from Ektha!

Ektha, a DPO, (Disabled People's Organisation) in Chennai was started in the year 2001. we work towards making the rights real for persons with disabilities. we believe that sports and leisure activities are as important a right as any other rights. These rights denied persons with disabilities especially persons with severe disabilities. This is the only game that can be adapted for us.  This game is a part of paralympics

We are in the process of expanding a game called Boccia, which is primarily for wheelchair users and severely disabled people but is inclusive as a whole.  We have conducted over 100 camps across Tamil Nadu Pondicherry and Bangalore We have conducted a few district and 3 State-level tournaments. Now we are planning to spread Boccia's wings across the country.

Ektha would be conducting a national level tournament in September 2018 at Adventure Zone, Madhurandhagam, Chennai. We are postponing the event due to logistical reasons.

We are looking for some support in terms funding for food and local travel for our participants. This will cost us 7 lakhs INR. you can support us contributing the whole or part of the amount or by connecting who will be interested in support this event.


Looking forward to your valuable support.

Thanking You, Regards, Rajiv Rajan executive director  Ektha
