We coach three age groups - U12, U14 and U16 - four mornings a week at the Indian Gymkhana Ground, King's Circle. In addition to our work in Dharavi, we provide basic packages of kit (bats, tennis balls and wickets) for schools in and around Maharashtra through our Rural Schools Initiative.
During the summer months we run a UK-wide kit appeal. Tapping into the recycling culture of Dharavi, we have received generous donations from children, families, clubs, Cricket Boards', and first-class counties.
Since the autumn of 2009 - thanks to the support of British Airways and Jet Airways - we have taken two tons of clothing and equipment to Mumbai along the way placing surplus kit with two NGOs, three orphanages, four sports clubs, and twelve schools in rural Maharashtra
Our co-partners in Mumbai, the NGO Reality Gives and the travel company Reality Tours & Travel, fund and run the Dharavi Community Centre providing a wide range of activities. Project Front Foot now comes under the umbrella of activities offered to the Dharavi children.
Children's participation in sport is a key component of their education and personal development. Our aim, through the provision of kit, coaching and competitive age group cricket, is to provide increased opportunities for the disadvantaged boys and girls of Dharavi and beyond.
