Sachin Tendulkar Foundation joins hands with Hi 5 Youth Foundation to build basketball courts in Andhra Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh

The Sachin Tendulkar Foundation (STF) joined hands with the Hi 5 Youth Foundation to construct basketball courts in Arunachal Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh. The two foundations have been partnering since 2020 to build sports infrastructure in schools. Speaking about the collaboration, Sachin Tendulkar said, “Sports is a powerful tool that not only keeps children physically fit but also builds character, self-esteem and confidence. It empowers children from marginalized backgrounds with the required skills that can help them win in all fields of life.” 

He added, “The expansion of our association with the Hi 5 Youth Foundation to develop two more basketball courts for children in the tribal communities and girls in particular is one more step in our vision to transform India from a sports-watching nation to a sports-playing nation.”
