Nurturing sports talents amongst underprivileged children
Krupali Joshi, a student of Adani Vidya Mandir, Ahmedabad is a naturally gifted athlete having leaped her first long jump at the tender age of 10 years. Earlier, when Krupali was studying in another school, her father was distressed with the continual increase in fees by the school. While Krupali’s father wanted the best of all worlds for his daughter, he was finding it difficult to let her continue at her previous school. His income was meagre and he also had a younger son to look after tp, due to which it was becoming difficult for him to meet the school’s fee demands. However, as he was concerned about Krupali and her dreams, he started consulting his friends, relatives, and local social service organizations for suitable education avenues for Krupali which would give her a chance to nurture her athletic talent along with academics.
During the course of his research, he frequently got advised to consider AVM. So, he made Krupali take the entrance test for AVM which she cleared with flying colours. Since then, life took a new turn for her. At AVM, her athletic talent was nurtured while she received financially free education. To ensure that her academics didn’t suffer, she was given regular coaching and moral support by all the teachers. The financial constraints of her family stopped being a factor in her life and it allowed her to become a better sports person and emerge as a star athlete. The conducive environment at AVM really benefited her as AVM takes special care towards providing nutritious and wholesome diet to its students.
Today, Krupali represents the school in many prestigious sports events held at the state, national, and international levels earning laurels for herself as well as the school. With each victory, more and more people have realized that she was born to create a sensation in tracks and fields.
She says, "Just during the phase when my family was struggling to get me a right platform for nourishing my athletic skills, Adani Vidya Mandir, Ahmedabad happened to me. Had it not been AVM, I would not have achieved my dream".
All of us at AVM just have a warm glow of inner satisfaction, that our infrastructure and sports faculty have enabled a young and deserving girl to achieve her destiny.
