Introduction to ASA
RDT believes that participation of youth in sports is necessary for the growth, self-esteem and confidence of rural children. In light of this, RDT has been undertaking suitable initiatives since the year 2000, through the Anantapur Sports Academy (ASA), to bring out hidden talents of rural children in different sporting disciplines.
The ASA is considered to be one of the largest sport for development programs, providing participating youth with infrastructure, equipment and coaching support. Apart from promoting sports amongst the underprivileged youth of Anantapur, it is also contributing towards their socio-educational development.
