Join Me In Teaching Football To Kids in Changthang

Nyoma is a place like you have never seen before. Towering mountains, white plateau and pristine waters. Unfortunately, because it’s so remote, it has almost been forgotten. The Changthang, Nyoma Block is considered as one of the most backward regions in Ladakh. Additionally, in this beautiful land, the absence of a strong education system, has become a serious barrier in providing young people with the means to cope with life.

The children here need opportunities to explore their talents, experiment and experience different interests & aspirations. And what better way than to introduce them to the world of football!

We see football as a:
  • powerful tool to bring together people from different ethnic, cultural and economic backgrounds. 
  • motivational tool that teaches how to ˜bounce back” from challenging setbacks and strive towards life's goals.
It is with a lot of hope that SAVE (Students Association for Village Education), Nyoma wish to organise the First football tournament for the village schools in the district. We expect the tournament to last 3 days. The district administration has come out in support of the tournament and has agreed to let the teachers and students skip school and attend the tournament, provided we can fund the expenses for this.
 
We have assembled a strong team for this. This includes:
- State level coaches, who are already working with the children.
- Coaches from Sparky football, partners with ‘Coaches across Continents’
- Sessions on importance of Values in play with Toybank volunteers!
 
While the coaches & the experts have all agreed to work pro-bono, funds are needed for the training material, transportation, boarding & lodging of the 220 participating children for 3 days.  In addition, we will build permanent goal posts and a 'field' that will make soccer a permanent game in Changthang.

Your contribution here can go a long way to create a positive impact in the lives of these children.
If you sponsor all expenses for 2 children(Rs5000), we'll send you a thank you card from the children.
If you would like to be one of the sponsors at the tournament, please send a message to us and we'll get back within a day :)

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful support. This is a big milestone for the tournament! It wasn't easy to get these metal goal posts fabricated in Leh and then travel the 200 kms of rough mountain roads to reach Nyoma, Changthang. But we did it -all thanks to your support!

In the next few days, the ground should be all ready to welcome to 200 plus children - who are preparing to participate in the first with a team of expert coaches, who are working hard with them in all the 6 villages.

Most of the training material has reached them. The rest is on its way. We will keep posting the updates as we hear from the ground.
Please do follow the Facebook page 'Chanthang for Football' for a day to day update.  

All this wouldn't have been possible without your support
