Under the project Right to Play, Roots Foundation’s endeavour is to ensure that every child in the National Capital Region who desires to play football – be it professionally or simply for leisure – is given a chance and adequate infrastructure. The management team has pioneered the setting up of prominent football academies in Delhi for the underprivileged.
Roots Foundation is in the process of setting up one of Haryana’s largest not-for-profit football academies in partnership with one of Delhi’s top football clubs. Budding talent from various initiatives is given full exposure and support to foray into the professional space. In a similar vein, Roots is setting up football academies in Delhi NCR and Uttarakhand.
