<About the Program>

Q. Why is the program only supporting soccer?

A. We are supporting soccer programs based on our visions and mission and our previous experience in activities.
Children observe parents and guardians well. Unrestricted cash benefit is very important support which enables households to direct the fund where it is needed and serves utmost urgencies. On the other hand, since there are rooms to decide how to spend, children may not be honest with parents or guardians about where their true passion lies. Additionally, sport is considered to be a long term investment for growth of children on top of immediate returns to children. The cash benefit is restricted to be used for soccer purpose only, to empower children fully to enjoy soccer by removing other choices.

Q.This is 2nd time support, where can we find the program contents and information about the 1st program?
