Luxury automobile maker Mercedez Benz has tied up with Laureus Sport for Good in India, under which it will fund two Laureus-supported programmes in the country. The two programmes are -- OSCAR and YUWA. The collaboration will see the two sport development programmes located in Mumbai and Jharkhand benefit from support to reach more children, empower and develop young women and girls, using sports to encourage themselves to reach their potential, a media release issued here stated. This support will allow OSCAR to grow its programme from one hub in South Mumbai to four new slum communities -- Mahalaxmi, Mahim West (Dharawi), Jogeshwari (Bharat Nagar) and Thane. Apart from funding infrastructural expenses, the partnership will also enable YUWA to continue providing vital educational support through the on-site school, said the statement.
