Cheerleading, Gymnastics and Table Tennis

By Umme Hamdani | Manager Communications & Coordination

The pandemic continues so do the activities at Khel. 

Cheerleading: Imkaans gymnastics team was able to take part in The International Cheerleading Festival this year held in Russia. We were able to participate because the event was online and the lack of identity documents was not a challenge for us. We won the first position in team cheer freestyle in the junior category. We at Imkaan are elated with this news and hope that we are able to resolve issues of statelessness to enable these children to be able to participate internationally and nationally. This win is a reinforcement of our belief in their potential and our commitment towards advocating for equal opportunities for children irrespective of the origins of their parents or grandparents.

Gymnastics: Recruitment of the new gymnasts continues at Khel, a learning and recreational centre in Machar Colony, Karachi. The coaches are focusing on creating a boys-only team and with little ones participating and learning hard the effort is bearing fruit in the form of some young ones performing wonderfully. The girls are ready to participate in games that will be held locally but are postponed due to the pandemic. 3 out of 6 are now at the International level while the rest are at level 2 internationally. 

Table Tennis: Imkaan is looking to expand its program by adding more tables and hiring coaches. Door-to-door awareness-raising sessions regarding the sports program is being conducted to add more members especially younger children to learn table tennis early. 

Imkaan is looking to expand its sports program and updates its facilities in 2021 - 2022. More on that will be shared in the next update.
