We work with children from economically and socially backward communities (8 - 14 year age group). Irrespective of gender, disability and background we give them an opportunity to train, excel and have a career in sports. The kids are trained in specific sports, at their schools by the young and the brightest volunteers among their community who dedicate 2 years of their life to be on our fellowship program as part of National Sports Corps. Post their fellowship, Bridges of Sports supports these fellows to be micro entrepreneurs to supplement their livelihood and further help build the sports ecosystem.


We couple this effort through collaborations in the space of technology and digital marketing. It will play an instrumental role in generating funds, bringing together volunteers, monitoring, and nurturing online communities who care about our cause.
