Digital Initiatives

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected our lives, especially the lives of children. The routine of children is tremendously disturbed as they are missing out on their usual physical activities. Keeping this in mind, Sportz Village Foundation has developed a digital physical education program to engage with children during the lockdown.
The digital program was piloted with 24 children from government schools in Tamil Nadu.

Based on these indicators we have arrived at the following insights.
