While sports and education is a routine for most of the urban kids, the Right of Development through quality education, play and other activities is often unavailable to children in far-flung government schools.
As an effort to bridge these obvious gaps, the ant took to sports for bringing about over-all development. Started in April 2015, the project takes advantage of the children’s groups in villages formed some years back. Every week, 20-25 children in the S4D groups meet and do what they always love to do – PLAY. But, play according to a curriculum that is designed to address issues like improved school attendance, confidence building, inter-personal skills, handling conflicts to name a few.

Number of children groups – 120
Age group – 8-16 years
Duration – 3 years
The ant hire services of The Magic Bus Foundation for the curriculum and technical inputs for the project, which is supported by DKA, Austria.
