Support Paralympics

Visit our Support Paralympics page on Facebook.  To support and champion the cause of the parathletes of India, CWF has started some unique initiatives:

a. Individual Sponsorship:

This is a unique approach where we offer a platform to sponsor individual Para-athletes with as less as Rs.500/- a month. This initiative is specially targeted for middle class people whose minimal investment can support future Indian champions. As a result of the sponsorship the sponsored athletes are performing really well at the State as well as at the national level. As a result more and more individuals are coming forward to sponsor this truly deserving Para-athletes. Mousumi Laha, a Software Engineer and a member of CWF is sponsoring Para-athlete Saheb Hussain from June, 2012. Saheb has got the ROLE MODEL award in the year 2012. Saheb represented Bengal at the National Para Athletics Meet, 2013 in Bangalore and there he won 3 Gold Medals in 200mts, 400mts and 800mts run. 

b. Media Advocacy:

We try to provide media exposure to Para-athletes who truly deserve that. We push various Print & Electronic media to cover the stories of different Para-athletes.

  • Times of India, Hindustan Times, Anandabazar Patrike and Pratidin published the story of Prasanta Karmakar getting ARJUNA Award, one of the highest achievements in sports in the year 2012.
  • 65 published a coverage story of the Para-athletes representing Bengal at the National Para Athletics Meet, 2012 in Bangalore. Extra Time from ABP Ananda aired a coverage story about them.
