Tacloban City – Steadfast in its commitment to deliver experiential learning, through football, to schools and communities, FundLife International extends the reach of its flagship programme, FFLA, to the students and players of Sagkahan National High School (SNHS).
On 9 January 2018, FFLA Coaches Rhobs and John Rex, conducted the first play session in its new partner school; welcoming current players from Brgy. Caibaan, an FFLA community site, as well as new players to the programme.
A total of twenty-six SNHS students, a mix of boys and girls with ages ranging from 12 – 19 years old, attended the first play session. The coaches gave a brief orientation about FFLA and the programme, introduced some basic football terms and principles to the new players, and supervised exciting football drills which the children enjoyed.
FFLA coaches will be conducting regular play sessions at the SNHS campus twice a week to monitor the progress of the players.

With the help of coach Rhobs, and a few cones, new FFLA players work on their dribbling skills.
With continued efforts, FundLife International hopes to reach more schools like Sagkahan, and more communities to engage more children to join and participate in the FFLA programme. Additionally, spread awareness about FFLA and get more people involved in providing complementary support, through sports, to the education and holistic formation of children, regardless of gender and social class.
FundLife International’s Football for Life Academy or FFLA is the organization’s flagship, award-winning program designed to provide innovative and dynamic learning experience, delivered through organized and regularly-scheduled play sessions to children from marginalized communities.
