However, in the 2 years that Khel Shala has been in operation, we are proud to say that children from Khel Shala have achieved great success. One of our girls and one of our boys featured in the finals of the Chandigarh State Open Squash Championships last February and many others reached the second round and quarter final stages of the tournament.
More importantly, during our two years in opreration 2 children lost one parent.
Khel Shala is proud to report that both these children faced hardship, but were able to come through as Khel Shala provided them with some comfort allowing them to escape from the day-to-day life issues at home.
Manjit Singh was able to come through having lost a mother.

The above moments and successes are what makes Khel Shala a worthwhile project which amkes everyone involved with Khel Shala harder in ensuring it's ongoing mission of "Empoering Children Through Sport"
