What We Do
Aditya Mehta Foundation (AMF) is a non-profit organisation which aids people with disabilities to pursue sports while providing self-sustenance.
The Foundation was started in October 2013, and has grown by leaps and bounds in a short span. Based out of Hyderabad, our area of operations spans every corner of our nation. We represent a cause that is unique in our country, and a large minority of people has much to benefit from the work that we do.
What our foundation does can be broken down into the following:-
- Raise Funds for our operations through our signature Fund Raising event, the Infinity Ride.
- Scout out talent among the disabled population of India.
- Provide counseling for such individuals and help them get better at their sport/ find a sport that is suitable for them.
- Provide the necessary equipment, training, funding for these athletes to help them grow in their sport and compete to win at the International level.
Along with civilian talent available, a major portion of our efforts are directed at finding and nurturing talent available in the nations Central Armed Police Forces (BSF, CRPF and ITBP), where there are quite a few permanent injuries which arise while a soldier is on duty at India’s International borders and naxal prone areas.
We support athletes right from the grassroot level and bring them up to a level at which they are capable of International dominance in their sport.
“Our vision is to make India a superpower in the world of Para Sports.”
