It also aids in children’s mental, emotional and physical development. Children learn the importance of teamwork and develop courage to face impact and conflict. Sports has been a proven tool for promoting healthy lifestyle behaviors and positive character development.
Program Goal and Objectives
Our sports programs consist of five parts:
1. Instruction in basics of the sport– Students are taught basic technical skills, such as dribbling, passing and shooting, as well as the rules of the game.
2. Games – Students play games that build teamwork, trust, confidence and communication ability while also practicing their basketball technique.
3. Discussion time and journals – Students and volunteers come together at the end of the day to reflect on the day’s activities and record their thoughts in journals. The journals serve as a record of the students’ personal development and is used in evaluating the impact of the program.
4. Inter-school competition – At the end of the school year, we organize an inter-school tournament to celebrate the students’ progress and give them a chance to demonstrate their newly acquired skills.
The basketball program focuses on female migrant children. Through this, we seek to reduce gender inequality that is more acutely felt by the underprivileged.
