About Aditya Mehta Foundation
Aditya Mehta Foundation (AMF) is a non-profit organisation which aids people with disabilities to pursue sports while also providing them self-sustenance. The Foundation, started in October 2013, has grown by leaps and bounds in a short span. Based in Hyderabad, the Foundation has managed to span out to virtually every corner of the nation. It represents a unique cause and seeks to help a neglected part of a fairly large population.
The AMF raises funds through its signature Fund Raising event, the Infinity Ride, and also scouts for talent among the disabled population of India. It also provides counselling for them and helps them get better at their sport or even find a sport that is suitable for them. It provides the necessary equipment, training and funding for these athletes as well to help them grow in their sport and compete at the International level. Along with the civilian talent, a major part of the foundation's efforts is directed at finding and nurturing talent in the nation's Central Armed Police Forces (Border Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, Sahastra Seema Bal and Central Industrial Security Force), which have a number of soldiers who have suffered debilitating or permanent injuries while serving the country at the border or in naxal-hit areas.
