Transforming India's Sports Landscape

In a heartening development for the world of sports in India, Dream Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Dream Sports, is stepping up to catalyze change. The organization is on a mission to revitalize the nation's sports ecosystem, making it a hub of talent, growth, and excellence. In a recent report by law firm Pacta, it was revealed that less than 1% of cumulative CSR funds from 2014 to 2021 were allocated to sports in India. However, Dream Foundation is defying this trend by committing itself wholeheartedly to the cause. One of its standout initiatives is the 'DreamGold' program, a Long Term Athlete Development program that has already seen DreamGold athletes clinching around 50 medals at national and international tournaments within its inaugural year. 

The program offers comprehensive support, including exposure, scholarships, mentorship, and sports science expertise, to athletes across various Olympic disciplines.
