Kolkata is where Khelo Rugby began it's journey. Our first location was in Brooklyn a community which many NGOs have tried to work in without success, but where Jungle Crows rugby player Zaffar decided he wanted to make a difference.
Across all of our Khelo locations in Kolkata in 2017 57% of participants were boys and 43% girls.

The numbers of children at our sessions vary each month for all sorts of reasons - they normally go down around school exams and go up as we prepare for tournaments. Our busiest month for weekly coaching in 2017 was March with attendance at coaching sessions almost touching 4000. That was regular coaching across the 30 locations we were then present in, brilliantly managed and organised by just four coaches working with 100s of young coaches.
