Since childhood and my experiences through it , I have come to realize the importance sports plays in building fitness, developing skills, inculcating values such as teamwork, grit,perseverance. I was very lucky to have the right environment and the right coaches to help me through this journey, however there are many out there who lose the battle before it starts.

Keeping this in mind, my friend Jishnu Sarkar (A Teach For India Alumni) has initiated a sports programme - 1 Student 1 Sport, for the students from grades 4 to 8 of the government school, Late Madhavrao Sonba Tupe English Medium School, Hadapsar The programme has been running for a year and I would love your support to help his in this noble cause.

Why - To promote young talent in the field of sports. To provide a platform for students to pursue and hone skills beyond academics.

What - A sports programme that aims at providing training to students in a sport of their interest by certified coaches. The programme entails 4 day training every week. Students will also get an opportunity to participate in inter-school and district level tournaments.

How - This programme has been designed with the collaboration of Fellows, parents and coaches. A nominal monthly fee is paid by the parents. Currently the following sports have been introduced - Football, Taekwondo and looking to start Kho-Kho next month.

Spread the word and get us in touch with people you know who could help us with this cause. Help a child explore a world beyond the classroom! No better way for me to celebrate my 25th birthday than to get my friends and family be a part of a project to foster the spirit of sports amongst children.

It gives us immense pleasure in informing you all that we now have about 170 students registered with us in the program. Things are going well now. We have recently hired foot and cricket coaches. The cricket coach was an IPL player about 6-7 years ago and we are lucky to have him on board. We are actively looking for a coach for Kho-Kho.
