Since 2015, Anand Chukka (ICCL Founder and Event Director) has combined two areas of professional expertise and personal passion to establish a social impact enterprise organization that utilizes Sports and Entertainment platform to raise global awareness in promoting inclusive society and focus on abilities and not disabilities. ICCL’s approach is also to involve celebrity or role models in sporting event platforms that reach out to all levels of society, build bigger awareness globally and attract wider communities to a greater acceptance, partner with research, corporate and nonprofit organisations in supporting projects including creating more employability opportunities, that make a real difference to those impacted.

Through the higher levels of participation, engagement and collaborations with differently-abled players which in turn opens new window of opportunities for corporates, philanthropists, researchers, professionals, celebrities, policy makers, influencers, supporting charity organizations to all join hands in creating an inclusive and prosper society. This allows many other organizations to embrace, inspire and create new initiatives via corporate (collaborative) social responsibility, sustainability or social license activities to benefit from these hidden talents and contributing towards equal, employability opportunities and economic prosperity.
