The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season isn't just about thrilling matches. Several franchises are using the cricket fever for social good, particularly in education 

IPL to the Rescue: Cricket with a Cause 

M3M Foundation, in partnership with Shikhar Dhawan Foundation, announced a unique initiative. Every 25 runs scored or 3 wickets taken by Punjab Kings during home matches will fund vocational education for a girl child. This plan aims to support 111 girls over five years.

By combining the power of cricket with the urgency of education reform, IPL 2024 is making a positive impact. With every run scored and wicket taken, the future for these children gets a little brighter.
