Community Sports Program

Pro Sport Development (PSD) has been running a community based sports program in Bhubaneshwar since September 2015 with children from underprivileged and marginalised communities, with a focus on aiding their holistic development.

PSD is working with children from slum settlements in Bhubaneswar to aid in their social and emotional development, physical health and well-being and cognitive development. The program helps the children to communicate effectively, build leadership capacity, work well within a team and learn to mutually respect their teammates, opponents and members of the opposite gender. It also encourages the concepts of camaraderie, inclusion and co-operation. Some aspects of the program focus on enhancing the children’s self-esteem and self-confidence, while others have a component to improve their abilities of focus, memory and concentration, which they can transfer to their academic learning.

From April 2017 onwards, Tata Trusts, a 125-year old philanthropic Indian organization, has partnered with Pro Sport Development to support, over the next year, the implementation of the Community Sports Program to 618 children living and studying in the various slums of Bhubaneswar, via seven centers.

Since September 2015, Pro Sport Development has implemented the Community Sports Program to a total of 1,672 children (44% girls) across 17 centres in Bhubaneswar.
