We have been actively running various initiatives and are confident that this newly launched program will achieve its objectives successfully. We are delighted to receive immense support from everyone and want to thank the eminent dignitaries and personalities for acknowledging our efforts,” said Dr. Payal Kanodia, Trustee, M3M Foundation.
Realizing that making a career in the field of sports and arts comes with many roadblocks, the ‘Lakshya-Udaan Hauslo’ Ki program will bridge the existing gaps and act as a pillar to support their dreams of talented youngsters. The foundation has identified many children and youth through a rigorous process from different parts of India and those selected were awarded the Lakshya scholarships this year in 7 sports including kabaddi, pole vault, football, wrestling, table tennis, badminton, and lawn tennis.
The unique program supports the growth and advancement of talented children along with youth from socio-economically weaker sections of society, to hone their skills in sports and arts. It will be helping them to participate in state, national, and international levels of competitions and aims to ignite the passion for sports and arts among children and youth.
