PM Imran Khan
Prime Minister Imran Khan, for a nation that lives and breathes cricket, we were shocked to learn that 93% of Pakistani youth lack access to sports facilities (UNDP, 2018).  

We are sitting on a goldmine of untapped potential, energy and talent. Of winners. With dedicated development of sports for girls and boys at the community level, we can not only excel in competitions around the world, but also provide access to a healthy and positive lifestyle for our youth, generate multiple social and economic benefits for our communities, as well as instill key life skills such as teamwork, discipline and perseverance.

Prime Minister Khan, we were inspired by your words when we started this campaign. You said, "It is not defeat that destroys you, it is being demoralized by defeat that destroys you."

Prime Minister Khan, let us not be demoralized by the thought of low resources. We understand the government has competing priorities, but with some creative ideas and out of the box partnerships, the possibilities to shape up this country for success are endless.

OUR REQUEST, is for you to spearhead a Pakistan Sports Initiative. Together, public and private actors can, under your leadership, lower the figure of 93%, by brainstorming modern and innovative solutions for the long-term improvement of community sport facilities and development in Pakistan.

This is a plea to you sir, to empower the future winners of Pakistan.
