I want to raise money in order to provide the children with basic sports shoes, uniforms to be able to play in, a professional basketball hoop to play on and eventually, a neatly laid ground for safe playing. Every rupee of the donated money will be used in a wise and beneficial manner. If you donate to this cause, you will aid multiple underprivileged children gain access to an outlet for their energy. This will not only help the sport of basketball grow in our nation, but it will also allow awareness to be raised about the importance of teaching kids the right way.
From a very young age, I have been extremely interested in sports; I have played football, basketball, cricket and tennis! Having around 4 years of experience with the sport of basketball, I came to realise that the way of teaching was limiting the potential for kids to progress. Kids, as I came to realise, were taught advanced techniques without even mastering the basic ones, they were left to play as they wished and they were not given any motivation to progress in the sport. I recognised this gap and wanted to go something about it, which is why I decided to help one of the local, underprivileged schools in my vicinity.
Furthermore, another reason why I chose this school was because very little importance was being given to competitive sports or fitness in general. Given that many of the students in the school have great potential to excel in the field of basketball, I decided to try and break that restriction by having talks with the principal. After negotiating, we finally received permission to carry out NO COST basketball training in the school grounds.
