They believe in providing equal opportunity to all, to achieve excellence in sports - irrespective of their social and economic backgrounds. Their mission is to enable India to be on the podium at the 2028 Olympics in track and field events.

Bridges of Sports Athlete program is focussed on identifying and nurturing talent from Indo-African Siddi and other tribal communities. The program is currently based in Uttra Kannada district and is solely focused on long and short sprints (track athletics). Under the program the selected children (13-18 year age group) are trained through a team of coaches, physios and sports scientists and supported on their accommodation, nutrition and education through their graduation. The main focus is to give them a platform to win the national championships and qualify for international meets to represent India.
