    This fundraiser will benefit

    Dribble Academy Foundation

    from Noida, Uttar Pradesh

From dreams of making it in the big leagues to staving off boredom after school, a basketball academy in Noida’s Gejha village is not only changing the lives of hundreds of underprivileged kids but it is also equipping them in the ways of life.

I started with 5 kids, 2 bamboo sticks and 1 ring in 2014. Today I have expanded to a point where over 300 students are morphing into disciplined student-athletes.


At least 130 out of the 300 children I train in the villages are girls. In India girls coming out to play in such numbers is huge. Just to pull this off without any major funding is an achievement in itself.

One of the students from Dribble Academy, Shaily Upadhya has received a 5 year 100 % fully-funded scholarship at The Shiv Nadar School, which is one of the leading schools in Delhi NCR.


2 more children from Dribble Academy were selected for the Under-14 District Basketball tournament for Boys’ (held in the city of Agra)

Unfortunately, I have spent all my savings on running Dribble Academy. From paying the coaches’ salaries to sending some of the kids to school, to getting them proper athletic shoes. I have built a full-sized Basketball court in the village but is now in urgent needs of funds for running the entire program.

Dribble Academy is my dream project. With your contribution, you can support me empower these kids and help run many such programs across India and impact many more lives.


Small steps lead to big changes, a Rs 1000 contribution from you will go a long way for us to provide these growing children with basic necessities of Milk, Eggs, Shoes, T-Shirts.  

Thank you for your support and generosity. Help us spread the word, share our campaign with your friends and family!
