CONTRIBUTION TO THE ACT GRANTS AND GIVEINDIA, 2021
DSF committed a sum of INR 7.5 crore each to the ACT Grants and GiveIndia in our fight against Covid-19. Approximately 50% of this corpus was used towards immediate medical support such as equipment, infrastructure, oxygen needs and testing, while the rest was dedicated towards boosting preventive measures such as vaccination drives, camps, and training.
DSF BACK ON TRACK, Since 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic has severely affected the entire sports ecosystem in India including athletes, coaches, sporting organizations and clubs. To support the vulnerable sports professionals, athletes & coaches, we instituted ‘Back on Track’ to provide immediate aid by way of sports equipment, diet and nutrition, training and coaching, monthly stipends and hygiene kits among others. So far, DSF has supported 4500+ individuals and 16 organisations from 29 different sports across 24 states and three union territories through this initiative.
RANI LAXMIBAI SANSTHA, BIHAR, Since 2020
Since 2020, our 'Back on Track' program in collaboration with the Rani Laxmi Bai Sports Academy in Bihar, has equipped and empowered 55 young girls from disadvantaged backgrounds, to overcome various odds and play football and handball at national as well as international levels. Today, these athletes have access to high-quality sports kits and uniforms, fit for players of their calibre. Additionally, the monetary support provided through the program has helped them maintain high nutritional levels to they can continue bring laurels in sports.
