Sharing with you an invitation from Executive Director of Childhope Asia Philippines, DR. HERBERT Q. CARPIO and Resource Mobilization Officer, Miss MYLENE R. LAGMAN.
We would like to invite you to the Opening Ceremony of our 10th Annual Hope Sports Festival tomorrow, April 25, 2017 (Tuesday), 9am at Rizal Memorial Coliseum, P. Ocampo (formerly Vito Cruz) St., Malate, Manila. Elimination games will be held on April 26 and 28, 2017. Please click the link below to see ‘Program’ for your reference.
This year, we expect 291 street children who will participate in basketball, volleyball, futsal (football on the streets) and badminton. We hope to continuously develop the street children’s self-confidence and self-worth through sports, while simultaneously motivating them to stay away from abusive and destructive behavior (e.g. substance abuse and street fights). Apart from engaging in healthy competition, the children will also have an access to a sports clinic conducted by Childhope.
We will also welcome volunteers to be part of our technical committee. Please see attached schedule of games for your reference. Should you have any questions or clarifications regarding our invitation, please feel free to call us at 02-5617118 or 02-5634647.
