The Bharat Army Foundation

2016 – A great year for Fund Raising!

One of the Bharat Army’s core objectives has always been to give back to India by supporting the underprivileged and disadvantaged children of India through Education and Sport.

2016 saw The Bharat Army continue its long term association with The Aware Foundation and focus on specific projects such as ‘Child Prostitution’ in rural parts of India.

2016 also saw the start of a new relationship for The Bharat Army supporting Sports For All (SFA) where we managed to support 70 disadvantaged schools participate in the SFA Games in December 2016.

Through supporting our chosen charities and initiatives, 2016 has been our best year to date. We managed to raise almost £20,000, which is a fantastic achievement and will make a significant difference to lives of many children these organisations support.

As we continue to commit to our objective, 2017 will see the launch of ‘The Bharat Army Foundation’.

The Bharat Army Foundation will be the driving force behind all initiatives we support going forward and will enable us to have a governing body around our fund raising activities with existing and new partners.

Finally, as the Founder of The Bharat Army, my passion for India has never just been limited to the Indian Cricket Team but for the country itself.

Supporting the disadvantaged and underprivileged children of India is something that I’m very passionate about and so I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to all those Bharat Army members from around the world as well as those friends and family members for your generous contribution and support in 2016.

Have a fantastic 2017 and let’s hope that The Bharat Army continue to make their presence felt on and off the field.
