"BAREFOOT BASKETBALL" ™
comes to Pakistan

Pilot project, May 2012

A Pervaiz Lodhie "Pehli Kiran" initiative

Deenar Khan Talpur village

District Badin, Province of Sindh, Pakistan

In one of the rural villages most devestated by the 2010 floods and the 2011 monsoons, there is now a basketball half-court, lit by solar-powered LEDtronics LED flood lights. Impoverished and displaced youth in the area are unable to receive an education, and so they often are caught up in criminal gangs or fall prey to drug addiction.The goal of this initiative is to give these youth something fun, exciting, healthy, and productive to get into and be passionate about, instead of heading in the wrong direction. This is the story of Pervaiz Lodhie's visit, and how the initiative's first effort turned out.
