OTHL applied for public donation to run its various program for the first time in 2019, that is, 10 years after inception. The program of Raising Fund was named 'I Support OTHL' . The idea is to collect all supporters, well wishers and promoters under one umbrella, engage them in various activities, provide them with all info about daily activities and progress. Of course, request them for annual contribution. These members are invited to join a WhatsApp ground in the same name to fulfil various stated objectives.
In 2019, it was decided to have at least 100 Annual Subscribers. It met with moderate to good response. Each member paid annual subscription of min Rs.5000. Some paid 10,000 and beyond too. The list of contributors were regularly published, and are available in the OTHL News section of this site.
We are now starting our third Annual Fund Raising campaign from 15th Jan 2022. I request all of you to pay a min of Rs.5000 for renewing your subscription for the year 2022. This year actually poses multiple challenges beyond normal ones.
Primarly, we need to focus more on social side of our players, mainly due to the colossal damage the recurring waves of COVID-19 is impacting on the lives of our stakeholders.
Challange number two is to bring the OTHL activites to the pre-Covid level, as many schools no longer show same enthusiasm for sports, and many of our trainees have left due to pandemic induced migration.
Thirdly, starting and running hockey for girls, for which we have just made a modest beginning
Fourth task is to maintain decent level of spend on nutrition
Fifth of course is to take part in various tournaments and winning.
