Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
This project is about discovering talents in sports, and develop their talents so they become independent and responsible people in the society. The sporting activities shall include Football, Basket ball, Volley ball, Table tennis, Lawn tennis, High Jump, Long Jump, Swimming, Wrestling, and Boxing.
It shall be in both male and female categories, except for boxing and wrestling, because in a society where the men feel dis-empowered and unable to provide, we should not forget that it is the women who suffer the most from being violated, and placed as less import. So we want to even the playing field for both the men and women to have equal opportunity to compete and to be seen and honoured.
