"Khel Shala, established in 2009, has a vision to change the lives of undreprivileged children in India through excellence in sport, academics and music, one village at a time. By providing opportunity for these children, Khel Shala encourages them to pursue their dreams and realize that it is possible to achieve and be successful. Khel Shala strives to broaden the horizons of underprivileged children, exposing them to the wonders of education and athletics and instilling in them a sense of curiosity about the world and different cultures. By providing these children the opportunity, it is hoped that through their academics and athletic excellence, they will be able to receive either athletic or academic scholarships to elite Ivy-League Universities and other institutions in the world. Khel Shal in it's mission to expand it's presence to other villages, is proud to report that a second branch of Khel Shala in village Majra is shceduled to open in 2012."
"We at Khel Shala are proud to be given the opportunity of Khel Shala being a registered NGO with United Way.
Donations realized from the marathon will be used to expand the competive side of our organisation. These funds will serve to help us provide more travel and squash tournament opportunities, as well as procure additional staff for our extra curricular activities. We are also in dire need of sports equipment for squash, intruments for music and mats for yoga.
Quite simply this development of raising funds through your support will truly put Khel Shala on the road to success to fulfill it's mission as stated above."
"This is our first association with United Way, so there is no history of any case study that we can provide.
However, in the 2 years that Khel Shala has been in operation, we are proud to say that children from Khel Shala have achieved great success. One of our girls and one of our boys featured in the finals of the Chandigarh State Open Squash Championships last February and many others reached the second round and quarter final stages of the tournament.
More importantly, during our two years in opreration 2 children lost one parent.
Khel Shala is proud to report that both these children faced hardship, but were able to come through as Khel Shala provided them with some comfort allowing them to escape from the day-to-day life issues at home.
Manjit Singh was able to come through having lost a mother.
Komal Kumari was able to come through having lost her father.
The above moments and successes are what makes Khel Shala a worthwhile project which amkes everyone involved with Khel Shala harder in ensuring it's ongoing mission of "Empoering Children Through Sport" "
