    This fundraiser will benefit

    BluFin Foundation

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

BluFin Foundation is a sports foundation founded by Sharath Gayakwad, Paralympian, 6-time Asian games medalist, Arjuna Awardee, to train under privileged kids and specially abled kids with a vision to make them international champions.

We work with a single focus of building grassroot level athletes, training raw talent to be national and international champions.

Our flagship program 'Rise', in partnership with Shishu Mandir, is training 60 underprivilege kids in swimming for free. These kids have never been to a swimming pool before and imagine the possibility of some of these kids representing India in few years!

BluFin is also focused on uplifting para-sports. In January 2019, we hosted para-swimming state meet - there was not a single state meet or any sort of competition held in the state for para-swimmers for over 2 years due some issues with the committee. Our state meet enabled para-swimmers in the state for classification and rankings for nationals.

We are looking to raise Rs. 20 Lakhs to support our programs for FY'21, which includes the following:
  1. Rise Level 2: We have identified 20 athletes out of 60 from Rise to start a highly focused professional training to evolve these kids into pro-swimmers competing in state and national level competition. 
  2. Shine: Launch Shine program which is a grassroot training for Para-athletics 
  3. Travelling Coach: Launch Traveling Coach program aimed taking quality sports coaching to remotest of the country and build champions from here
  4. Championships: Continue to support para-swimming by hosting regular state and national meets
This crowd funding campaign is to support our programs planned in 2021. Would appreciate if you could take time to read our story and support us if it aligns with you
