Why just take homeless children? Just because they are unfortunate and are orphaned doesn't mean they should not get education and be forced into sports. They should be allowed to pursue their own ambitions.
Speaking of academy and professional training, we do have BKSP where hard work and discipline are taught. From Shakib's interview, he left his parents in Magura and permanently moved to BKSP, Savar in class 6-7. He used to wake up at 5:30 AM everyday for routine physical work and more. So if you are speaking of sporting academies, BKSP is there and we can open more branches outside of the Savar one. I believe they were opening a new one in Sylhet.
