India, the world’s second most populated country, has enjoyed almost three decades of unparalleled economic growth. Indeed, between 2018 and 2022, India is estimated to produce approximately 70 new millionaires every day.  Despite the irrefutable economic progress, data collected from the Homeless World Cup showed about 1.8 million homeless individuals living in India as of 2019. This showcases the revolting inequality that clearly exists not just in India, but in many other large developing nations in the Global South. On this week’s episode, we speak to Abhijeet Barse, one of the founders of an organisation that aims to combat homelessness and improve the living conditions of underprivileged communities all over India, through football. Tune in to find out more about his organisation’s work in slum communities, and how sport for development has added value to the collective fight against inequality and homelessness in these vulnerable communities.
