“Football is a sport which has the power to change one’s life. It changed the lives of underprivileged children who now spend more time on the ground activities instead of indulging in nefarious activities. The journey started in 2002 has been continuing and will definitely shape their futures.”, Vijay Barse shared after having received the award.
