Umoya Sports by Aditya K.V – Umoya Sports

Date grant awarded: June 7, 2018

Umoya Sports, an initiative created by Aditya K.V, aims to provide holistic education to people with disabilities through ‘Joy of Sports’ by developing equal sports opportunities and equipping them with skills to lead an enriching life. They believe that sports benefits everyone equally and they use sports as a tool for development to build an ‘Inclusive sports culture’ in India.

Their flagship program, Joy of Play, is a progressive year-long, during-school sports program curated for students with intellectual disabilities and special needs. They also create an environment of inclusion inside schools by bringing children without disabilities (mainstream students) to play along with children and adults with disabilities.
