Help Janki represent India at International Judo Championship

You Can Support her Dreams

 “I want to represent and make my country proud,”
 Janki Gond, Gold Medallist, 5th National Blind and Deaf        Championship 2017

My name is Janki. As a little girl, my mother would never allow me to go anywhere alone for she was afraid, what if someone would take advantage of my blindness. She didn’t think that I could lead an independent life. In my teenage years, I learnt Judo techniques to assure my mother that I could defend myself in case someone tried to harm me.  However, I instantly took a liking to the game and started honing my skills whenever the opportunity arose.

My Judo skills have increased considerably over time and I have won various national level Judo contests. I have been to Lucknow to play Judo and won a silver medal there in 2016. In 2017, I improved my performance and won a Gold medal in Gurgaon at the 5th National Blind and Deaf Judo Championship.
This year, I have been selected to represent India in International Judo contest to be held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Only 11 contestants have been chosen from India and I am one of them.

My sports journey may have to come to a standstill owing to financial constraints. In order to reach Tashkent and take part in the contest, I need Rs 85000 for travel and other expenses. I come from a small interior village called Kurre of Sihora block of Jabalpur district, Madhya Pradesh and my parents are unable to support my sports dreams. It’s not possible for them to sponsor my travel. Sightsavers India (International NGO that works in the space of avoidable blindness) has decided to help me and raise fund through for this event through Milap.

I would request you to help me take part in this championship so that I can do my bit to make my country proud.

Dear donors

Janki is finally going to Tashkent. She has managed to raise money on her own to buy travel tickets. However, she needs extra money to take care of her lodging and boarding.

Thanks a lot
Keep Supporting

Dear Supporters,
This fund will go to Janki's personal account as she needs some money for personal expenses when she goes to Tashkent and will be used by her to buy some personal gears (dress and equipment) to take part in the championship in Tashkent.

Thank you so much for the support.
