Leyte - Last May 2017, FundLife signed a partnership with the Department of Education Region VIII, which allowed the organization to introduce and deliver its Football for Life programme to public schools in Leyte. Three schools from Tanauan, Palo, and San Joaquin, Leyte were selected as pilot schools, and they started at the beginning of this academic school year. Four months into the programme, F4LA has successfully delivered a total of 70 Sessions, directly engaging up to 200 children.
Tacloban City - Football for Life was again invited to the annual Leyte Interschool Invitational Sports League which ran from August-September 2017. Three F4L teams were registered to participate, one each under the U12 Mixed, U15 Boys, and U15 Girls categories. Players who have consistently attended our Mini Champions League every Saturday from May-July were selected to be part of the teams, as a reward to their commitment to the programme.
Palo, Leyte - When I heard the Coaches Across Continents (CAC)would be conducting their 3rd Coaches Seminar here in the Philippines, I felt very excited as it would be my first time to join the programme. Together with the FundLife team of 4 Coaches and 2 Junior Coaches, I joined the 5-day CAC Coaches Seminar held last 21-25 August 2017 in Palo, Leyte. I was then fortunately selected to assist in their seminar in Cebu the following week.
Reuben is one of the 10 young leaders selected from disadvantaged areas around the world to participate in the week-long training programme which emphasizes on the themes of sport, leadership, and community. He is a Football for Life Coach, and he's been working with us for more than a year.
Palo, Leyte - Last 22 July 2017, the San Joaquin FC hosted the their second Football Festival at the San Joaquin Elementary School in Palo Leyte, and Football for Life again took part in the games. A total of 18 players were selected from across the 9 sites of F4L to form two teams under the U12 Mixed and U15 Boys. As F4L does, this opportunity was again given to those who regularly attend the practices and sessions of the programme.
