QUEEN’S ROAD: Bengaluru FC on Thursday announced the launch of BFC Cares, its social outreach initiative that will see the club partnering with four city organisations to contribute more for the community.

To kick-start the initiative, the Federation Cup champions will join hands with Magic Bus, Dream a Dream, Sneha Care Home and Voice of Stray Dogs. “We have  always been fans of the city and in just a little more than two years, Bengaluru has embraced the team in a special way. We are always looking for a chance to be able to give back as much as we can and BFC Cares will play a big part on that front. We have spent a considerable amount of time interacting with these organisations to see how we can do meaningful work together. Magic Bus and Dream a Dream are doing some great work with children through sport. As is Sneha Care Home through their residential school for children living with HIV. As for Voice of Stray Dogs, BFC has always been an animal-friendly club and tying up with the world’s largest city-wide dog rescue group made sense to us,” said Mustafa Ghouse, COO of BFC.

Bengaluru FC has already been successfully running the ‘BFC in the Community’ programme, under which club coaches and first team players conduct clinics in parts of the city. The programme will now be under the umbrella of BFC Cares.

Vishal Talreja, co-founder and CEO, Dream a Dream, said, “We are excited to partner with BFC. We recognise and respect the tremendous success of BFC in using football for social development. We believe that through this partnership, many young people will be able to learn key life skills.”
