Success can be measured by the contributions an individual makes to his or her fellow human beings, each person playing their part to reach a larger goal. With this very ideology, ITFA set out to improve and strengthen football as a professional sport in India, nurturing it from a grassroot level.
Football improvement isn't just about infrastructure. It's about people with actual, updated football knowledge, ready to work in the same direction with an open mind. ITFA's Founders, Advisory Board and Ex-Chelsea Pros are just such a collection of talented, inspirational individuals.
ITFA partnered with RJF to tackle essential areas of sports development for underprivileged children in India:
Souting, Recognizing and Training
Conducting Football Camps with National and International Coaches
To identify and restore grounds with local level citizens participation

A National workshop “Eco-Next workshop on Eco-sensitive Zone of Matheran” jointly organized by Grassroots Foundation and Raichel Joseph Foundations. Catalyzed and supported by National Council for science & Technology Communication, Department of Science & Technology, New Delhi was envisioned to be a two part workshop, the first part dealt with 3-days orientation workshop where the first day involved the larger community
(schools & villages) and the next two days interacting with the selected youth/participants for the workshop. The second part was an advance workshop which focuse on training the youth of these villages to become entrepreneurs and capitalize on the environment the live in through eco-tourism. The part-I workshop helped us to identify and know the youth/participants of the villages
which was imperative to plan the advance workshop. Their strength and weakness were identified which helped us curate the lectures and training sessions. Various interactive activities were added in the advance workshop which engaged the participants.
We approached various institute to help in training and giving first hand information to the participants.
We prepared a companion which provided in-depth information in Marathi and diagrams which helps them understand.
We visited the site multiple times to interact and encourage the participants for the workshop and along with we checked the logistics aspects of it.Through intensive brainstorming session in the studio & multiple site and institution visits,this workshop was formulated.
An upcoming space for life long learning and employable skills development.
