Seeding Confidence for Life
Chitra*, 13, is a student of HCL Gurukul in Kannagi Nagar, Chennai, Tamil Nadu. A Class 8 student, she is active in all the Gurukul activities and is passionate about sports. However, coming from a low-income family, Chitra found it challenging to achieve her sport goals. Fortunately, HCL Foundation supported her with professional coaching and sports kits. Most importantly, the Gurukul helped her build self-confidence.
Chitra started participating in kabaddi, football and boxing. Subsequently, she was selected for the National Boxing Unit and has travelled across India in that capacity. “I’m proud to be part of the Gurukul supported by HCL Foundation. The motivation provided with sports kits and coaching helped me achieve great things. Thanks to HCL Foundation for taking care of my travel and other expenditures. I will achieve in sports and fulfil my dream of becoming a Police Officer some day,” says Chitra.
