Sports for Every Child is a program for bringing change in lives of millions of children and youth who lack access to coaching, nutrition and basic sports gear.
We are not only coaching for making them competition ready but also trying to prevent and change negative behavior & various addiction practices in these children and their peer group. Our program imparts life skills like discipline, team-work, goal setting and responsibility.
As on today, we have been providing coaching to 2300+ high potential, lesser privileged children from schools across Mumbai through expert coaching, nutrition & conditioning in 5 sports. Our national & state level coaches are training these children in sports like athletics, boxing, kabaddi, taekwondo and wrestling along with capacity building of physical education teachers for a sustainable impact.
Aid for Sports : Sports gear is a basic requirement of all programs we run. We collect old gears to make a less privileged enthusiastic child or youth pursue his/her passion. Thousands of children and youth from our partner agencies has also joined the 'Aid for Sports' programme.

Education tends be the highest priority for the average Indian household instead of extra-curricular activities such as sports. A popular Hindi saying roughly translates to "if you study hard you will live like a king but if you play sports you will ruin your life."
Scarce public investible resources have eluded sports.This is further compounded by misallocation, lack of transparency, poor asset management and an absence of a framework for measuring impact of public spending. This is unlikely to change, despite the government's best intentions.
"Helping individuals advance to the limits of their potential in diverse arenas—including sports—is the development strategy of the future."
Playing sports or engaging in extracurricular activities play an important part in one's character/personality development. One develops management skills, negotiation skills, communication skills, convincing skills, conflict management and confidence.
HEED India desires to create equal platform for bringing sustainable change.
