The only hockey NGO in India, has successfully introduced hockey teams in 80 schools across five cities in India since 2008. Its the major private effort at grassroot level. http://onethousandhockeylegs.com OTHL visualizes a career for underprivileged kids of age 11-15 by providing them an opportunity to play sport in their school thereby ensuring they attend school regularly and take interest in both sports and academics.
OTHL has helped around 2000 kids seek pleasure in sport, and consider it a tool for career advancement. These kids have been imparted skills, and have started winning prestigious tournaments, recent one being Cairns Juniors Cup.
Based on their exceptional hockey skills, some boys were adopted by top end schools in Delhi -- the recent one being the Modern School, Barakhamba Road, New Delhi -- to be part of their school hockey team and in the process got access to top quality education.
