The months from March to June are the busiest months for most businesses in the table tennis domain, with summer camps contributing to over 60-70% of their annual earnings that sustains them through the rest of the year. However, the pandemic and continued lockdowns have dealt a hard blow to the lives and livelihoods of millions, including table tennis academies, players, coaches, fitness trainers and maintenance staff.
Many of them have lost their jobs, and some have run out of business. A lot of them are single breadwinners of the family, some are even going through personal, health or environmental crises and a few are just starting out in their careers. With lockdowns coming at this crucial time, and no respite at sight, they are staring at a bleak future.
Let’s aims to raise Rs. 500,000 (5 Lakhs) to support the most vulnerable people in the Karnataka Table Tennis family during this difficult time with the financial grant.
Through this initiative, we are looking to support table tennis coaches, fitness trainers, housekeeping, administrative and maintenance staff who are in dire need currently. We are aiming to raise Rs. 5 Lakhs so that a one-time grant of Rs. 10,000 can be provided to each individual. Each grant will go a long in way in supporting and sustaining the families of these people who have devoted their life to table tennis. The money will be directly deposited in each person’s bank account.
We have identified beneficiaries through a trusted network of Karnataka Table Tennis Association, Karnataka Veterans Table Tennis Committee, and other members of the Karnataka Table Tennis community.
Come join our team and help us support people who play in an integral role in Karnataka Table Tennis and other sports as well.
