The year’s edition will have participants only from government schools.
What’s it about: For class 7 student Kaviya, her dream of playing football comes true with the second edition of the Chennai Kaalpandhu League (CKL), a CSR initiative by LatentView Analytics. More than 180 kids will participate from 30 government schools. The league is returning after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
- Training began on September 16 at their respective schools. The students are given a complete kit with food and transportation included.
- The coaches are experienced and pay individual attention. For kids and parents, it’s a way to encourage sports apart from academics.
All round development: LatentView believes sports are important for the holistic development of a child. For them, the CKL is a small step. For the kids, it’s an opportunity to learn and help them grow. It instils in them a sense of pride and happiness. Some may even want to pursue a career in football or sports in general.
