From eye camps and counselling sessions for children and women to theatre workshops and sports programmes, Youthreach has undertaken working with some stellar volunteers who made a difference to the organisations they worked with and the communities served by the latter. The following activities reflect some of our past work:
ENGLISH TRAINING AT MOBILE CRÈCHES
In association with the India Youth Soccer Association, Youthreach ran a soccer programme for nearly 200 underprivileged children. Sponsored by AIS, the programme aimed at training and coaching children who would otherwise not have a chance to learn and participate in a sport. The grounds of Vasant Valley School became the playing field for the children every Sunday. Organisations such as Karm Marg, Salaam Baalak Trust, Vidya and Deepalaya participated in the league. Each child was given a soccer kit and football boots. Most of our young players kicked the ball for the very first time when their coaching began a few years ago. The Soccer Programme has now transformed into a full-fledged Sports Programme facilitated by Youthreach.
