The Martha Farrell Foundation has partnered with Akhil Bhartiya Samaj Sewa Sansthan (ABSSS) to implement Kadam Badhate Chalo in Banda.
A sports camp was held on 25 - 28 January 2016 for the youth in Banda, in collaboration with ProSports Development. Thirty - three girls and forty - one boys participated in several activities including hand hockey, continuous cricket, ball tag, dodgeball, team relay, blindfold course, rugby bulldog, volleyball tennis, get rid, beat the ball, etc. The youth were encouraged to learn teamwork, communication and leadership through these games.
In the Q&A sessions, all participants expressed they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves and wanted to play more. Most of them had never been involved in games and sporting activities such as these.
Rohit, 22-year old male, said, "Team mein sab ko sab par vishwas hona chahiye" (In a team, everyone should trust each other).
Jyoti, another 19-year old girl, said, "Aapas mein baat kar ke ladkiyan bhi ladko ki tara kehl saktee hain" (By talking amongst each other, girls too can play like boys)
