Combining the success of FundLife’s Football For Life Tacloban programme and Pandoo’s expertise in interactive education, the partnership marks the beginning of exciting new learning opportunities for Cebuano children and a chance for both organizations to accelerate their impact in the region. During the visit, Mr. Henry and Ms. Stevens identified potential beneficiaries, project sites, development stakeholders, and community groups, many of whom were excited to begin this new project.
FundLife Founder, Marko Kasic, is delighted by the new partnership. “We are very excited to join hands with Pandoo,” commented Mr. Kasic. “F4L’s success in Tacloban has given us great confidence in the power of sport-based learning, and through this new partnership, we can combine our resources and field knowledge to create even greater impact in Cebu. Pandoo’s summer camp is a perfect opportunity to screentest a new community, and we can’t wait to start.”
Aligning in values, mission, and experience in sport-based programmes, Pandoo Foundation provides an invaluable resource for the F4L project. Incorporated in Cebu in 2014, the organization has become a thought-leader in interactive education and has several established outreach projects in literacy, arts, sports, and community development. The Foundation has achieved significant social impact through its diverse skill-building projects and strives to equip the next generation with the right tools to free themselves from poverty.
Pandoo Foundation President, Francois Perreault, believes sport is key to engaging local youth. “Start with play and the learning comes naturally,” said Mr. Perreault. “Critical life-skills are developed through sport and these programmes are essential in building communities of strong, confident young people that can enact real social change. We are delighted to be working with FundLife, and so are our kids!” ~
