We at ABIL Group have constantly supported various initiatives that incite growth in a multitude of aspects. And, it is a matter of pride that we have associated ourselves with an overall development in children through an outstanding platform, Schoolympics that encourages exhibiting their passion for sports.
An initiative by Sakal Media Group, Schoolympics paves the way for an all-round development in personalities of children by organizing various sports events like archery, gymnastics, kabaddi, kho-kho, skating, cricket, and others. It is a prodigious platform for children who require a medium to unfold their exquisite talents in the world of sports. It is an excellent initiative to cater to the requirements of these little Olympians who foster great potential to be known for their talents.
