New Delhi : Baazi Sports Foundation in association with PokerBaazi, joined hands with Edspectrum Foundation to provide a level playing field to children from weaker sections of society as they explore, experience, and gain exposure to multifarious sports. In line with the government’s vision of ‘Khelo India’ for the youth, Baazi Sports Foundation intends to support 20 children through a fellowship program that entails bearing any monetary support for their journey of sports training.
As per the data available, research depicts that sports training from an early age can result in higher cognitive functioning, thereby improving the academic performance of students. On the other hand, sports engagement fosters leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship and provides opportunities for personal growth and development.
Sharing his views on the initiative to foster better health amongst young children, Navkiran Singh, Founder, and CEO at Baazi Games, said, “Sports act as a powerful tool to provide lifelong learning amongst children making them realize the importance of leadership, teamwork, and competitive spirit. Sports continues to be the language children connect with the most thereby positively influencing their thinking and outlook toward various hurdles in their lives. Baazi Games is proud to provide these children with an equal opportunity to enhance their passion towards a sport of their choice and aspire for glory in life.”
Understanding the need for the current generation’s needs, he added, “While social media continues to influence the building blocks of growth for children, it is important to guide, educate and share the positives of sport to ensure a holistic development.”
Baazi Sports Foundation has pledged to support more than 300 children from the age group of 8-15 years to help children pursue different sports and realize the importance of engaging in sports in their learning and developmental journey.
