Millennium Fellowship Project: The Breaktime Student Athletes

Thousands of children in Dhaka city have been ripped off of their youth and given the undue responsibility of the breadwinner in their families. These children belong to underprivileged, often destitute families suffering from extreme poverty. With no education or source of entertainment, these children have leaned towards drug abuse as a coping mechanism for hunger, depression, and pain while their lives spiral around ruthless struggle in search of a living.

Through The Breaktime Student Athletes project, we aim to organize charity sports tournaments for many such children, creating for them a regular source of entertainment and sustainable fund streams that will sponsor their education. Partnering up with organizations not limited to NGO schools, Sports and Technology brands, Public Figures/Influencers, Entertainment Facilities, Sports Communities, MFS and Banking services, and the NSU Administration, we aim to utilize NSU's 27000+ student body to organize sporting events that can range from physical sports (Soccer, Cricket, Picnic games etc.) or E-Sports (Combat and Action Games, Virtual Sports, Racing, etc.). Our key goal is to ensure that our target beneficiaries and participants can all enjoy the sporting activities together, and that these activities can surmount to meaningful outcomes that have a lasting impact, i.e. empower the underserved youth with education and entertainment.
