Your support can change the world, inspire health in rural schools

Life is beautiful, for those who have privileges. One thing leads to another and advantages come flooding in, but stop for a moment and think of those less fortunate. Standing in long lines for hours just to fulfill basic needs like getting water to drink, bathe and survive.  Living in darkness when the sun sets, limited in resources and sharing everything with large families. Children suffer the most as they sometimes have to choose between survival and healthy childhood.
I believe with basic help we have the power to give back the childhood every child deserves, keeping them healthy by encouraging their indulgence in outdoor sports, one not only cements a community that comes alive through activity, better health and sheer pleasure of becoming  an excellent sportsman but can also go on to represent one’s community or even state or India one day.
 I feel blessed to have a healthy lifestyle at my school. Sports daily, great equipment and well-maintained facilities. However, on a recent trip around rural parts of the country, I saw a very different picture at schools, specifically the government schools. From half torn badminton nets, to near to nothing soccer fields, to tattered sports equipment. Providing the right sports facilities to students is definitely not a priority for authorities. This not only leads to a less healthy lifestyle but also curbs possible talent that can do the nation proud one day. Please invest.
 
It’s all about investing in a child's future and making dreams possible through this initiative of encouraging health through sports at the grassroots level of our society, our villages. Come help in supporting this dream and change a child’s life forever. Your support will go a long way and we ensure to implement your funds with the right caliber and in the right place. The usage of these funds will be implemented in several ways...
 

The usage of these funds will be implemented through several ways. To begin with, constructing two basketball courts  in the two secondary schools will be one of the major priorities since this is a multi sport platform for the students to play. For example, a badminton net can also be attached in the center of the court allowing there to be two sports played on the same location. Secondly,  for the two primary schools, the funds will be executed to bring in stuff such as slides, monkey bars, swings etc since these are children of grade level 1-5 only. Thirdly, maintenance of the fields that these schools have is poor and if this is fixed, it will only allow there to be more area for the children to play on which means more students can be active at the same time. The funds will be used to clean up and make these fields as good as new. 

2 Basketball courts: INR 6.5 lakhs each
Poles of the basketball court with basket and net- INR 30,000
Cricket Kits 8 - INR 35,000
4 Badminton Nets with rackets- INR 5,000
