Introducing a young, fierce and ambitious lady , who held her “Baton of hope” and determination at a very young age. Talking about her initial years, sports has been very personal and significant for Ms.Tanvi. It has been an escape from various distractions and a gladdening experience for her. She started playing basketball in the 9th grade and used to play tennis formerly. She has already played 3 state tournaments and 1 CISCE Nationals along with countless district and inter-school tournaments.
Being empathetic towards other made her introspect the fact that there are equally passionate and aspiring athletes who have all the right qualities to become the next big thing but lack financial resources. This made her take a step back and check her privileges , that eventually made her brainstorm as to how she could use that privilege to their advantage. This lead to the birth of Baton Of Hope . via this medium , approaching the CSR departments of different multi national corporations.
Her organization , “Baton of Hope” pitched the concept of Baton of Hope, aiming to secure funds for underprivileged athletes at the grassroots level. They (her organization) finally got Hero MotoCorp , the largest 2-wheeler company in the world – to support nine athletes for 2.7 lakh rupees. All these athletes have a monthly income of less than 25,000 rupees and have not had any other external financial support. Out of the 9 athletes that her organisation supported, 2 are para athletes and 3 are female athletes.
They are from all over the country – New Delhi, Gurgaon, Jodhpur, Solapur, Gwalior, Gangtok and Patna. The selection process for the same was rather tough as she rolled out a form and received an overwhelming number of responses from athletes that are more talented than words can express.
However, after sifting through a beautiful mess of palpable talent, we found our 9 shining stars. This feat that was achieved by Baton of Hope is something we will remember for the rest of our lives. After all, it’s the first of many. She is the perfect example of someone who take pride in living and promoting other lives and becoming a reason for their success.
