Taufiq*, 17, plays football with the SportCares Saturday Night Lights football programme. He often comes hungry for training because he hasn’t eaten all day, but despite that, he is one of our top volunteers and a disciplined athlete. When he is home, he loves to help his mother prepare meals.
Lina*, 15, lives with her mother and six siblings in a one-room rental flat. Her mother leaves the house by 6m and rarely returns before 8pm. Lina is a young footballer who trains in borrowed shoes. She has qualified for the National Women’s U19 team.
Ameril*, 18, plays Saturday Night Lights football. He loves training and playing with SportCares because he appreciates the fairness and commitment to all players. He says that his single-parent family often misses meals as they try to save money for rent. When asked how many meals the family eats daily, he says, “It depends on how much money we have.”
*Names have been changes to protect the individual’s privacy.
SportCares Foundation is at the heart of a growing national movement to use sport for social good. With support from partners in the community and corporate sectors, SportCares has organised programmes that have touched the lives of more than 12,000 children, youth, seniors and persons with disabilities. While each programme we organise has its unique characteristics, our mission has never varied: To empower the vulnerable through sport. Got an idea that can help change lives through sport?
