Generally, most cricketers in our parts of the world after retirement hang around in the sport. Some become coaches, some take up umpiring, others get into administration while there’s a growing tendency for ex-players to get involved in media.
Former Sri Lanka all-rounder Farveez Maharoof, however, thought out of the box and started a new business venture after retirement together with close family members and friends.
Footsteps Pre School was his brain child to help kids. Situated in Dehiwala, the Pre School celebrated its first anniversary yesterday on Maharoof’s 36th birthday.
Like everyone, the Pre School suffered after the outbreak of COVID 19 pandemic. After being shut for three months, it’s back in operation now. However, even during the pandemic, the children were kept busy as every child received a study pack.
The Pre-School maintains international standards and in a short period has gained in popularity and the demand to enroll children is ever increasing.
