Paria Fuel Trading Company Limited (Paria) is proud to sponsor Badree’s BASE Cricket Academy, reaffirming the Company’s commitment to youth development through sport – one of the pillars of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

The BASE Cricket Academy, dedicated to nurturing young cricketers aged 5-15 from fence-line communities, aligns perfectly with Paria’s vision of empowering youth through sports. Through this partnership, Paria has committed to sponsoring children from within its fenceline communities to participate in the academy’s program.
