Corporate Social Responsibility
H&R Block believes that a sustainable world can be created only when we support
the community and give back whatever we can in every way possible. In the endeavor
to do this, H&R Block has partnered with ‘Just for Kicks’.
About Just For Kicks
‘Just for Kicks’ is an NGO that operates with a vision that by year 2025, 1 million
children will play organized sport in school, developing life skills to succeed
socially and professionally, while leading healthier lives. Through their unique
model they intend to bring about a change in the lives of children through an in-school
intervention model. This model involves working with children when they begin school
and work towards child retention, life skills development, fitness improvement,
and ultimately – academic success too. They even have a post-school program that
focuses on students with talent in sports for further development and exposure.
JFK has partnered with NGOs and Football Clubs such as, Huracan FC London (an English
sports club), Teach For India, Pune Football club and HOT FUT for supporting these
About The Association
Through the partnership with JFK, H&R Block will sponsor select teams and contribute
towards their coaching, sports equipment, tournament league expenses etc. H&R Block
and its employees will also interact with these kids directly and get an opportunity
to be a part of their development through mentorship programs.
A proper activity calendar will also be laid out each year to help have an interaction
with the teams, attend matches, visit schools, have one to one engagements and many
more fun activities with the kids that will lead to their overall development.
