10-year-old K is a small, jovial boy with puffy hair. Twice a week, he joins us for football training. He plays as a striker, always looking for opportunities to shoot and finish.

But look past his happy-go-lucky personality and actually, things aren't going so well for him at home. K comes from a single-parent family. His mum does her best to support her children, working as a cleaner until a recent stroke left her unable to work. Living space in their 2 room rental flat is tight. Finances are tighter. His grandmother now lives with them to care for K and his siblings and cousins while his mum recovers on her sick bed.

In FootballPlus, we provide disadvantaged youths like Kalam a safe and healthy football environment to grow up in. We believe young people benefit from the positive influence of caring adults.

FootballPlus' vision is to help change lives and build stronger communities through football. On average, FootballPlus works with 200 young people on a weekly basis, with 81% coming from a disadvantaged background. These children receive sponsorship that enables them to train and take part in competitions

You or your company's contribution can make a positive impact in the lives of these young people. Our goal for this fundraising project is $50,000 and your contribution will help us significantly in our effort to help change lives and build stronger communities

About the Charity

FootballPlus Singapore was officially initiated in Oct 2013, after almost two years of planning and pilot running of various school and community programmes. FootballPlus received its charity status in June 2014 and attained IPC status in August 2016. Since its inception, FootballPlus have grown steadily in its outreach to young people in the community and schools. Our current work sees us working with 200 players every week throughout the year. The academy also works with many young people from disadvantaged and low-income families, giving out subsidies or full sponsorship to enable them to be involved in the weekly trainings. Through its value-based football training programme, FootballPlus aims to impact the Football, Foundation and Future of every player.
