Challenge

India has over 2 million children whose basic rights are not being met. These include orphans, abandoned and runaway children, street children & children living in slums. These children have limited or no access to opportunities for life skills development and without which they run a high risk of failing to rise above the vicious cycle of poverty and life on the street. The project will impact over 1500 children by 2009-12 and develop in them skills to access a better future.

Solution

Each child/youth in the age-group of 8 -14 yrs will be a part of this program. The duration the project is 8 months.

Long-Term Impact

In 2012 - 2013, the project will help over 1800 children develop critical life skills using team sports like football to create a fun filled learning environment and what they learn on field can be directly transferred to life off the pitch.
