Partnered by the Dharavi-based NGO, Reality Gives, and sponsored by Allcargo Logistics, Project Front Foot launched The Dharavi Cricket Academy in November 2015.
The Academy runs morning and afternoon coaching sessions three days a week for U12, U14 and U16 age groups at the Indian Gymkhana Ground, King's Circle.
In addition to our work in Dharavi, we provide kit packages to schools, orphanages, sports clubs, hospitals and village communities 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 across the cricketing community.
Thanks to the support of British Airways we have, since the autumn of 2009, taken over two tons of clothing and equipment to Mumbai.
Children's participation in sport is a key component of their education and personal development. Our aim, through cricket, is to provide increased opportunities for the disadvantaged boys and girls of Dharavi and beyond.
