Basketball at Umerkot School Jan2014
Lodhie Foundation sets up Basketball at Chhor Boys High School in Umerkot District of Sindh Province in Pakistan on Jan29, 2014

The Basketball system was built, installed and game initiated by the fine team of Shaantech KEPZ Karachi in collaboration with students, teachers, staff of the Chhor Boys school. This team game initiative is part of our poverty alleviation and human development work being introduced in many unprivilaged rural areas and villages of Sindh as a start.

Team sports are equally as important as education in developing world class citizens.
