Gymnastics and the Pandemic

By Umme Hamdani | Manager Communications & Coordination

The COVID-19 pandemic has halted life all over the world. Due to the lockdown in Karachi, Imkaan had to close its operations in Machar Colony. Keeping in mind the gravity of the situation and the need for social distancing all activities of Khel, a learning and recreational center have been halted. 

In mid-May 2020, Imkaan reopened Khel just for gymnastics training. Students are divided into two groups and are allowed to continue training at the center with one coach present at a time. The girl's gymnastics team has been in the process of learning to work on the balance beam.  Before the pandemic, the smaller balance beam was purchased which was put to use for training. 

Imkaan is now awaiting to open the recreational center and continue to train new children for the gymnastics team.
