"Growing up feeling powerless, watching other people decide my opportunities, lowered my own confidence before I even learned to grow with it"- Kopal Goyal, Founder
It’s not just an overnight story but it starts right at the moment when a girl is born. Be it from how her parents brought her up, peer pressure in pre-school, gender difference in the classroom and physical education classes, playing something in your locality, at home or anywhere, women were and are always forced to realize their limits, body types, outlooks, their strength, age, social values but they were never taught how to live their lives or live their passion: does not matter if it’s to be a housewife, doctor, footballer, mountain biker, rock climber, or maybe a sailor.
In short INDEPENDENT AND FREE!
More than what a human should do to make one’s life better, society is more focused on making one realize what a girl can do and what she cannot e.g- At home when people shift utensils or things and when a girl tries to take up the opportunity and work then people will interfere and tell her, “let it be, it's heavy and you won’t be able to lift that but I will ask your brother to do it". In my case it was a bucket full of water, sometimes it was about pushing a washing machine towards the wall. People made fun of me that I can’t do pull-ups and push-ups. I am very sensitive but no one cares about how strong and self-dependent I can be and do what I can't do.
So, when someone is stopping you from doing these things, you can imagine the situation when one gets to know that the same girl wants to pursue her career in rock climbing or ice climbing. And by doing this you question one’s ability, does not matter if they are using those words unconsciously, but the fact is that these words can have a deep impact on someone else’s life and maybe this could become her reality that “SHE CANNOT”.

Donate your used gear- Your contribution can make a difference. Practicing extreme and alternative sports is not easy because it demands heavy investment of equipment, travel, medical expenses, etc.
The gears and equipment you donate will be connected to the right population who can't afford investment into these but will benefit greatly without letting their passion die.
Once a donation is made, Inspire Crew will share regular updates with you towards the progression and usage of your equipment. Let's help someone keep their inner passion lit a little longer.
We blossom more with more exposure, right groups, and collaboration. Currently, we are restricting all the physical events or gatherings but that doesn't deter us from calling NGOs, Sports groups, brands, and public figures to help everyone get exposure towards reality and attaining new skills and development.
New interactions also build your confidence which completely correlates with an athletic journey.
We can also plan for virtual sessions.
We are pursuing Inspire Crew to be a people’s platform. While it’s too early to say what that final picture will look like but trust us, it’s a constant work to get there behind this platform. We are very sure we will come to publish our story of thriving pretty soon. Since we are here for thriving than surviving, we NEED you. We welcome filmmakers, graphic artists (digital or otherwise), writers, storytellers, photographers, event coordinators, and athletes to count a few to come from the front and be part of our story.
Once we hear from you, we will ensure a quick conversation or elaborate discussion to take the collaboration to the next step. Waiting to hear from you all lovely people !!
