Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Pro Sport Development
  • About Organization:Pro Sport Development (PSD) is a social enterprise set-up in 2013 by Suheil Tandon to work towards the vision of developing sport and empowering youth at the grassroots in India. It all started in late 2011, when Suheil returned to India from the UK, having completed a Masters in Sports Management from Loughborough University. With experience of coaching youth, his involvement in elite sport and his desire to develop sport at the grassroots in India, Suheil’s idea of a sports social enterprise in 2011 evolved into the setting up of PSD in 2013. PSD initially started with the aim of nurturing young sporting talent, especially amongst marginalized sections of society, where Suheil believes talent is abundant but opportunities are limited. However, he soon realized that sport has a much larger impact on children and youth than just their sporting development. While working on one of PSD’s initial projects, delivering sports programs to tribal youth in remote rural.
