Support and share for the dream of govt school kids in Pugalur village

Sports is a great way of learning important values of life and keeping the society healthy. Traditionally renowned teaching institutes used team sports to teach kids values such as integrity, team work, self-belief, trust which helps them in the long run.
We aim to provide such an experience to the kids from rural Tamilnadu and are in the process of setting up a football and fitness academy in Pugalur. Given the socio-economic situation, we plan to offer this experience free of cost to the kids.

Kannan a certified grass-root coach (trained by Zai, Singapore palcy national coach), leads this initiative and has so far managed to get this initiative started with support from local community. We have got permission from the Government Higher Secondary school Pugalur to use their grounds for training. We have pooled our own money and with some support from friends and family, purchased basic training gears. shoes.

We have 50+ students from the nearby villages signing-up for the program under 3 different groups - U10,U12, U14, U16. To offer this kind of training over a long term we are in need of funds that will help us buy more training material - footballs, shoes, cones, goal post, shin pads, first-aid kits, ladders. We also are hoping to prepare a grass-turf to avoid injuries when they play.

If you would like to make a difference in the lives of these kids, please help us by donating using the link below. I will keep you posted of how the funds are spent and the progress of the kids, so that you can be assured that your money is spent on the right thing.
