Awareness Building

The initiative came following a study by the WHO which revealed that 81 percent of adolescents are not active enough for their health, with girls less active than boys.

With this new programme, the IOC endeavors to encourage people to take up physical exercise as a part of their daily routine by making it fun and peppy. This will enhance both their mental and physical health as the two are inextricable.
