Hockey Citizen Group, which runs globally acclaimed One Thousand Hockey Legs’ (OTHL) project is a not-for-profit organization. Its volunteer based public service organization. OTHL aims to improve the profile of young kids, mostly from lower profile strata of stratified Indian society, and provide them joy in their childhood.
OTHL visualizes a career for underprivileged kids of age 11-16, provide them an opportunity to play sport in their school thereby ensuring they attend school regularly and take interest in both sports and academic.
We seek to introduce the sport of hockey to at least 500 kids across 25 schools in each city and provide them free equipment, coaching and competitions and guide them to achieve their academic and sporting ambitions. This program has been running in 5 cities of India since last TEN years, and helped around 2000 kids seek pleasure in sport, and consider it a tool for career advancement. Many boys have been adopted by leading schools on sporting merit, and thus got free education. While the cream talents got selected for various Sports Hostels run by the government agencies where the kids get free boarding and lodging, equipment and training. We insist on quality education, and let sports go hand in hand with education, and also organize various skills training.
