Life is a Ball-A non-profit Changing Kids Lives Through Sports.

Life is a Ball Public Charitable Trust (LIAB), is a not for profit organization, that mentors children through sport. LIAB is transforming the lives of underprivileged children by teaching them invaluable life lessons through sport and equipping them with skills required to face the world with a smile on their faces and grit in their hearts.

Life is a Ball works with Corporation / Government / Government aided Schools and schools catering to underprivileged children and introduces organised sports coaching for the students. We also provide opportunities for youth to engage in sports in an effort to prevent substance abuse, bullying and promote equality.

We fill a void in most Govt / Govt aided schools that do not have a dedicated and experienced PE teacher. LIAB deploys an experienced sports team, which includes a coach and a manager, with the equipment required to implement a specially designed multi sport curriculum.The LIAB program currently teaches general physical fitness and a variety of sports during school hours two/ three days a week. 

The program facilitates the following in the schools -
• Implements a specially designed comprehensive sports curriculum
• Provides expert coaching to the children
• Provides age appropriate sports equipment for program delivery
• Encourage a culture of inclusion by curbing inequality and bullying
• Nurtures students to form sports teams and provides kitting to teams
• Enrolls the teams in various tournaments and manages the teams LIAB’s novel “Gift a Ball” project provides each and every kid with their very own ball to play with as and when they wish to. The program would benefit children by improving their skill levels creating a culture of sport in their neighbourhoods.
