PokerBaazi has announced its association with non-profit NGO Vidya Integrated Development for Youth and Adults (VIDYA). PokerBaazi will donate a share of the rake collected during the upcoming PokerBaazi Premier League Special Edition (April 21-28) towards the education and upliftment of 14 underprivileged girls for a year.
According to the organizers, this tie-up with VIDYA will result in more such CSR initiatives by Baazi Games. Initially, 14 girls will be covered by the program, and the company is looking to grow this number in the coming years.
Poker Baazi has already started campaigning with the idea #PlayForACause to reach out to the maximum number of professional gamers. In the words of Navkiran Singh, CEO of PokerBaazi.com: “As a part of the program, Poker Baazi will donate a share of the collected bounty towards the education of underprivileged girls along with the expenses for their school uniforms, midday meals & transportation. This is an issue we feel deeply about and our team is charged up to get this noble initiative in play.”
As a non-profit NGO, VIDYA set out in 1985 to help the girls and the underprivileged people of the society. There are so many issues in our society and the denial of food, shelter and education – especially to underprivileged girls, is one of them. Through this PPL series, they are planning to spread the word, so as to inspire people to come forward and support this cause and make a difference.
