Helping children get
the opportunity
to play multiple sports


Started in 2013 as a Teach for India Fellow-led initiative to expose children from low-income communities to sports. We launched a football event engaging 700 kids across 19 schools in sports. Over the years our initiative evolved and Khel Khel Mein Foundation (KKMF) was registered as a charitable trust envisioning to transform the grassroots sports culture in India. Currently, we work in Delhi engaging with the public education system and communities directly. We have worked with over 10000 children across 80 schools through our current and past programs.


The three core principles of the KKMF are PLAY, PERFORM AND PROSPER. This essentially acts as the vehicle for the implementation of our theory of change. Every idea needs a good road map, and ours has been created through the use of the three P's.

This leads to a child getting the opportunity to play multiple sports, perform in competitive leagues and learning crucial life skills through self-awareness and experiences of playing.

• Playing means that children have access  to quality sports and physical education  training in school and beyond. 

• Perform would lead to exposing the  children to diverse opportunities to  showcase their skills, such as the KKM  League and other Mohalla tournaments. 

• This leads to the ultimate goat of prosper which sees the holistic growth of the kids through this process. Prosper would refer  to their mental as well as physical  development within the society that they  live in. Physically prospering would refer  to increase in strength, stamina and  change in food habits. Mental  development would see skills of  leadership, accountability and  responsibility grow in them






Since its inception KKMF has worked in 3 communities and has done mentorship programs in 47 low income/govt. schools across multiple locations in Delhi. Currently, we are based in two communities, Aya Nagar and Sangam Vihar where we work with 500 people including children parents and stakeholders. 

Our projects & programs have been majorly focused on Delhi. Beyond Delhi, we have worked with a rural school in Jammu & Kashmir in 2015-16 and also with Punjab government during their summer camp program in 2023
