APPLICATION FOR SPORTS AND ARTS SPONSORSHIP UNDER LAKSHYA PROGRAMME

 

ABOUT M3M FOUNDATION:M3M Foundation is the philanthropic arm of M3M Group, working since 2019 towards bringing an equitable development that helps in attaining a brighter India. The Foundation ensures the resources required for marginalized communities where everyone is empowered and equipped to reach their maximum potential to plan, implement, monitor and contribute in sustainable community development. The prime focus of the Foundation is on education, healthcare, livelihood and environment conservation for the socio-economic development of the society.

 

BACKGROUND: Over the years, Indian education policies have emphasized more on academics as the prominent indicator of career development and economic progress. This has unfortunately resulted in sports and arts related fields being given a lower priority in school and college curricula. Physical training in schools is largely restricted to marching drills or physical training exercises, undertaken once a week. Another major challenge being faced is lack of access to apt resources and skilled coaches/trainers/counsellors/mentoring. There is a scarcity of professionals in sports/arts-related careers, which correlated to the quality of sportspersons/artist. These are the practical challenges on the ground, which need to be addressed if India aspires to be a sporting nation and improve its performance at international levels M3M Foundation thus initiated The Programme Lakshya with the aim of nurturing young talent, especially amongst marginalized sections of society, where there is abundant capacity but opportunities are limited. It aims to foster the growth of children and youth as confident and competent individuals by ensuring their sustainable participation in sports and arts.

 

Through Lakshya, Foundation would support 21 individuals to prepare and train in the areas of arts and sports, 10 to participate in District level competitions, 8 to participate in the State level competition and 3 to participate in the National/ International level competition.
