Can Social Media Help Girls of Dooars Realize Their Football Dream?

Tata Capital

Most of you would be already aware of our association with Tata Capital’s Do Right initiative where we are supporting the #HalfStories phase of the campaign.

To the uninitiated, Tata Capital’s Do Right initiative is a pan-India initiative encouraging people to build a better future both by inspiring people to ‘do right’ and by providing them the platforms to ‘do right’.

While some people are cynical about social media and how it can influence our society, many others believe in the platform and its potential to bring about a real change. In this context, the #HalfStories campaign of Tata Capital’s Do Right initiative is a shining example of adding real value to people’s lives by harnessing social media. An initiative we are proud to be associated with.

After helping the villagers of Raghurajpur with a website where they can sell their artworks, we are back with our next Half Story and we are sure you will again help to complete it  with your valuable contributions!

Looking for his next Half-story, our Do Righter came across a group of young girls in Dooars working together at a tea stall. The reason behind their endeavour turned out to be far more motivating than it originally seemed. We discovered that these girls are a part of a local football team with ambitions to make it big in the world of sports.

They earn money from the stall by selling tea and rotis and use it to buy their own sports equipment. These amazing players, one of them has even played at the national level, have not been able to gather enough support from society and family members. But against all these hardships, they are driven to play for their country one day.

Can Social Media help them?

Fulfill Their Dream

In order to help these talented girls achieve their goal, Tata Capital is looking to raise an amount of Rs. 16,500/- from social media users; because they believe in the potential of this powerful medium.

This money will help them purchase their kit and footballs to practice with. These efforts will ensure that they do not lack basic equipment and thus will help them to focus on their game and future better.
