The Power of Sports and Innovative Education

Dear Valued Supporters,

We are excited to share with you the detailed progress we have made in Q1 and Q2 2024, thanks to your generous support and unwavering dedication to our cause.

Through our unique approach of combining sports and innovative education, we have been able to engage and empower highly vulnerable adolescent girls in Grades 11 and 12 who have been struggling with their academic performance since the COVID-19 pandemic. With your help, we have expanded our program to 11 public schools in Tacloban, reaching an additional 165 girls.

Other notable milestones achieved by FundLife at the start of 2024 are as follows:

  • Co-hosted the Tacloban Mayor's Cup 2024 Futsal Tournament with the Department of Education - Tacloban Division at the Generation Amazing Community Club (GACC) located at Brgy 106, Sto. Niño, Tacloban City. The tournament was a resounding success, with 56 girls aged 13-17 participating in 25 exciting futsal matches. The competition not only provided an opportunity for the girls to showcase their skills but also served as a platform to promote gender equality and women's empowerment.
  • Organized the Girls Community League (GCL) Festival, a special edition of our GCL initiative. During the event, we distributed hygiene kits to 83 girls, which included sanitary pads, soap, lotion, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and cologne. The girls also participated in a Champions session with a local female Champion, Architect Danisa May Fuentebella, who shared her inspiring story and emphasized the importance of sports in teaching valuable life skills such as perseverance, discipline, collaboration, and self-confidence.Currently, the GCLF involves 106 girls from two age categories - U14 (14 years old and under) and U17 (17 years old and under). Since the kick-off ceremony, the girls have played 60 matches every Saturday morning, totaling up to 15 hours of play. Alongside these play sessions, we have organized mentorship sessions on mental health awareness, personal wellness, and developing good study habits to ensure that these girls receive comprehensive support and guidance.
  • Initiated the Move for Equity Campaign, which was held in celebration of International Women's Day. The campaign saw the participation of 74 individuals, 23 of whom were males and 51 of whom were females. Through a Zumba activity, we highlighted the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle for all participants and promoting gender equality.
  • Delivered a two-day capacity-building training on Gender Violence for 29 senior high school coordinators, school guidance counselors, youth mentors, and youth leaders. The training equipped the participants with knowledge of laws related to gender-based violence and oriented them on the reporting mechanisms so they can respond adequately should these cases happen in the community. We believe that education and awareness are crucial in addressing gender-based violence and creating a safer and more inclusive community for all.

We are genuinely excited to continue this journey together in the upcoming months and look forward to the endless possibilities. Your steadfast support has been an unwavering source of hope, fueling our determination to push forward in our mission to #StandwithGirls.

Thank you once again for your invaluable contribution to our cause.

With heartfelt gratitude,
