NEST has been working closely with Welspun Group since 2017, to identify & support deserving female athletes for the Group who come from diverse backgrounds. Within a short span of less than 2 years, 7 athletes have already been associated under the program where we provide comprehensive long term training allowing the athlete to perform at the highest level. Together with NEST, Welspun has carved a niche in ‘Empowering Women Through Sport’ with a vision to expand this program to 50+ deserving female athetes by 2020.
