Jatwara: India’s Hockey Village | Unique Stories From India

 

How a German woman named Andrea Thumshirn is transforming a village in Rajasthan using India’s national sport.

Andrea is the founder of Hockey Village India, a foundation that’s trying to use the power of sports and education to bring about a change in India’s villages. Giving up a penthouse apartment and luxury car in Berlin, she now lives in a small house in Jatwara, determined to provide the children of this village and others like it with the chance to dedicate themselves to a sport. A place where girls were earlier not even allowed to step out of their houses is now home to some of India’s most promising hockey talent.

Outside the metros and beyond the urban jungle live the sons and daughters of India’s heartland. This series tells their stories. 101 Heartland celebrates both unique communities and individual tales of hope, struggle, and reform. From the village of bouncers just outside Delhi to the fascinating story of Ram Kumar Tyagi, once a wanted man but now a coach for aspiring female wrestlers, 101 Heartland tells stories for the heart, from the heartland.
