Mumbai: Mumbai Indians, under their initiative 'Education For All', have invited nine underprivileged children from various Mumbai-based NGOs to Dubai as part of the experiential tour and to watch today's Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Mumbai and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
These nine children will give a presentation on the NGOs they represent and interact with their favourite Mumbai Indians players and support staff. They will don the Mumbai Indians jersey and will be at the Dubai International Stadium to cheer for their team.
The visit of these kids to Dubai is the first initiative of this season by 'Education For All', and will culminate in dedicating an entire match to the cause when Mumbai Indians play their first home match in Wankhede Stadium on May 3.
Around 18,000 to 20,000 underprivileged children from various NGOs across Maharashtra are expected to be at the Wankhede Stadium to watch the match. Last year, Mumbai Indians had 11,000 underprivileged children at the Wankhede on April 13.
