W1 comprises members who believe in the holistic development of the society and doing their bit to contribute towards this goal. As a result, Varun Achreja, co-founded the 8one Foundation to promote the foundation’s eight identified goals of Education, Peace, Gender Equality, Employment, Environment, Nutrition, Hygiene and Well-Being. The Foundation aims to affect pragmatic sustainable progress, with social development taking priority over other interpretations of the term 'development'.
8one’s Flagship initiative, the Young Legends' League (YLL), has been started in partnership with the Mizoram Football Association. YLL has been recognized as India's first structured football development initiative that coincides with the Baby League Model advocated by the All India Football Federation. The aim is to engineer societal change through the region’s love for football. The project has also garnered interest from the media, and we have been covered by major websites such as ESPN, GOAL.COM and Scroll.in. The launch was even covered by the mainstream media, in India Today, Outlook, Business Standard and others through the PTI network. Since then, both Times of India and Hindustan Times have also covered it.
