    This fundraiser will benefit

    Differently-abled cricketers and women cricketers along with mainstream cricketers as well

    from Kolkata, West Bengal


Suvro Joarder, the initiator of this fundraising campaign is the first blade cricketer of World as well as the captain of the Physically Challenged Cricket team of India. He is on a mission to support underprivileged women as well as differently-abled cricketers along with the overall upliftment of mainstream cricket.
In this regard, Suvro is coming up with an academy in South Kolkata's Vivekananda park where he aims to provide free training facilities to underprivileged women and specially-abled cricketers as well as needy and talented sportsmen. The academy (Straight Drive: An initiative of Cricket Association for Physically Challenged Bengal) will be one of it's kind in the City of joy.
To help the mission, the Mayor has also come forward with his contribution of the land where the academy will be constructed. But in the current situation of the Covid-19 crisis, it is becoming incredibly difficult to get the required funds for the construction of the Academy. The Corporate help we had hoped to get on our journey has also become limited due to the ongoing global economic crisis. Hence, this is our humble effort and appeal to the people involved with 'Milaap' for their contributions for our endeavor.
The Academy will consist of 7-8 proper high quality pitches along with all modern and current facilities such as gymnasiums, sports shop and a low-budget canteen as well to help the cricketers enrolled there.
Everyday we see the proof of the power of social media when netizens come forward with their help for causes. With the mission to help underprivileged youth as well as differently-abled sportsmen to achieve their dreams, and women cricketers to get equal opportunities and the recognition that they deserve, Suvro had formed this Association (CAPCB) in the year 2016. The Association is already behind the success of bringing the National Championship Trophy to the State in 2019.
With the experience and the zeal to never back down, moving forward he has planned to make way for others and help them reach their goals.
