Giving talented children the tools they need

Do you believe that access to sports is a child's right?

Here at GVI, we believe that playing sports is a right all children should have. As such, we have put your donation to use in sports education. Recent donations have been used to fund a local sports coach’s - Surender Sir. The school could not afford to pay the salary of the sports coach and now we can get the children to be learning the importance of physical exercises and movement, healthy living and learn skills related to sports such as teamworking, communications, and listening and speaking also. 

Donations have also been used for the sports equipment. The kids get so excited when we gave them all the new equipment. The school is always lacking footballs, volleyballs, cricket bats and badminton rackets . With your donation, the school is now better equipped and kids can now practise their favourite games and stay active.  

The boys have  formed a football team and we are hoping that after the summer is over in the new term we can have an Auxilium cricket team and start some interschool tournaments. The girls are also getting more involved with sports with badminton rackets and skipping ropes. 

Hopefully in the long term we hope to make the students to active, be more confident, practise sports and participate in competitions, all of which is important for their development and growth.

There are also a lot of talented children who need the right guidance and given the equipment they will come up to be big sportsmen/women someday.
