In our pursuit to reach out to the youth, children and families with sports and other recreational and social facilities to the far flung western suburbs of Borivali an office space was identified at Holy Cross road in the year 2006. The need for Recreational Activities for Youth and Secular Community programmes was much felt in I. C. Colony. Thus it was clear that the next step was to identify a free hold land or Government land to begin our activities.
With God’s blessing we were able to adopt two Recreational grounds from the BMC R North ward in the year 2008.
Initially the neighbourhood residents used the ground for early morning walks. Also we reached out to the slum children and organized them into groups for Athletic training, Physical Fitness and Volleyball coaching.
The Borivali Centre was officially inaugurated on 27th March, 2009 in presence of over 600 people who gathered to witness the historic moment. The Basketball Court was inaugurated and other activities such as Football, Volleyball and Throwball was made available for the community.
The centre quickly became the hub of activities for the local crowd as they flocked to take the opportunity of the well maintained Recreation Center to relieve their stress and make a few new friends. The walking pathway, newly constructed with the paver-block tiles became the attraction for all walks of people whether old or young.
In the years that followed we were able to reach out to many children from the community through our various coaching programmes in Basketball, Chess, Football, Rollerskating, Ketsugo, Volleyball, Day camps and Summer camps.
