NMDC in association with Chhattisgarh Government and TENVIC Sports would implement a unique sports education programme in 30 Government schools in Chhattisgarh i.e. 14 schools in Mahasamund & Kabirdham Districts, 6 schools in Rajnandgaon and 10 schools in Jagdalpur.

The State Government has identified 23 sports including cricket, table tennis, badminton, basket ball, football, etc. for physical development of children studying between Class-III to Class-X of schools in the State. The schools can choose any 04 from among the

23 sports for the above purpose.

This initiative has been launched in the presence of Shri Gaurav Dwivedi, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Govt. of Chhattisgarh; Shri Sandeep Tula, Director (Personnel), NMDC; Shri Amitava Mukherjee, Director (Finance), NMDC and Shri Anil Kumble, Chairman, TENVIC Sports at Raipur on 16.02.2019 by signing of a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) by NMDC with Govt. of Chhattisgarh and the initiatives will be implemented by NMDC CSR Foundation (NCF).
