Compassionate Sports is one of the many initiatives undertaken by Charter for Compassion Pakistan to engage the youth of lesser privileged areas to participate in productive and healthy sports activities to help improve their personality and character. The objective is to develop feelings of resilience and self-efficacy, team cohesion, synergy, and problem-solving capabilities for both communities and individuals.Objective
The focus of the sports program is on the mental, physical and social health of sports participants. A trials period lasting over two months, engaging 1500 children, allowed our committed coaches to select vulnerable yet motivated players for the camp from Korangi, Lyari, and Sultanabad/ Hijrat Colony.Unique Perspective
There already exists a dearth of spaces where individuals can take part in some kind of sport or any other physical activity. The situation is even worse for people coming from underserved areas. Compassionate Sports tackles an otherwise untapped issue and provides the underprivileged an opportunity to take part in some sort of physical exercise.What all you offer
