FIFA believes that football is more than just a game. Through its unique power and universality, football can bring people together, transform lives and inspire entire communities. It creates powerful opportunities to break down barriers on social development, education and health awareness. This is evidenced by the hundreds of community organisations that are active in delivering social projects through football across the globe.
To harness the game’s huge potential, and support existing football-based community projects, FIFA launched the ‘Football for Hope’ initiative in 2005 to help improve the lives and prospects of young people around the world. It offers funding, equipment and training sessions to organisations running such projects; the initiative also organises events for experts and young leaders so that they can meet, exchange ideas and learn from each other while sharing their experience of working in this field.
GA is honored to be working alongside this organisation in Nepal to bring awareness and help young people improve their lives, and those of the people around them.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, Jasmine Fitness Club and Spa Pvt. Ltd. collaborated with Ideashop Media and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd in organising the 4th Women’s Squat Competition.
This event, held on the 6th and the 7th of March 2019, focused on spreading the message that women are as strong and capable as men. In a society where the concept of fitness sports are considered to be only for men, the Interclub Women’s Squat Competition strongly advocates that it is of equal importance to women, and encourages fitness and sportsmanship among Nepali women — making it an ultimate gateway for eventual international participation in the future. Again, GA was able to sponsor athletic apparel for the participants and their team managers.
The myth “boys are more interested in sports than girls” is exactly that — a myth. There is no research evidence that prove this statement. We can see that girls are just as interested in sports as boys when they are young. However, lack of opportunities, peer support, and encouragement all cause them to drop out of sports at a rate that is two times greater than boys.
During, and for, the ‘Goldstar Miss Athlete 2017 and 2018’, GA sponsored all athletic t-shirts.

What’s more, the Baskin Robbins ice cream stimulates the happy hormones and causes you to reduce the level of stress, it relaxes your nervous system, and the calcium in the ice cream works on reducing your risk of colon cancer.

Since their work is very multi dimensional, in the sense that, at one point they are making the storyboard for a concept in the office, the next moment they are at an off the beaten tracks taking photos and videos where two-wheelers can barely make it, and then, back at the office pulling an all nighter making sure the edits are of high production quality.
