One Million Hockey Legs is proud of all its projects. But our best practice is in Khunti, Jharkhand. In the tribal belt of India. The region is rural and economically disadvantaged. We, as One Million Hockey Legs, cannot say different that that the region is beautiful and hockey is popular from origin.
At the end of 2016 about 4000 children join, on a weekly basis, training sessions that are given by the 40 trainers/coaches (Master Trainers) that are educated by One Million Hockey Legs in a “train the trainer”/ “coach the coach” courses. In cooperation with the local NGO CInI, also our organizational partner, we have set up a social and life skill program that is designed specifically for this area and its needs.
The 40 Master Trainers are employed by CInI. And have now a sustainable income. Most of our Master Trainers are school drop outs.
