Street children's sports fest to boost discipline, build team spirit

MANILA, Philippines – With much festivity and excitement, Childhope Philippines opened the 2019 Hope Sports Festival participated in by its street children beneficiaries, street educators, and volunteers last April 23, 2019.

About 222 street children filled the halls of the Canonigo Covered Court, wearing their designated uniforms, representing 6 teams, and take part in competitions in a number of sports such as basketball, volleyball, badminton, and futkal (street soccer).

Dubbed as Hope Sports Festival, this yearly tradition is part of the skills development project organized by Childhope Philippines to promote the spirit of teamwork and sportsmanship among its street children beneficiaries. Moreover, the activity aims to develop their sports skills and talents and to teach them important values in pursuing their goals and passions.

The celebration was started by a festive team parade followed by reciting of the prayer and singing of National Anthem. President Emeritus and founder of Childhope Philippines Ms. Terista Silva made her remark to formally open the celebration.

Silva said that a friendly competition will help instill discipline and build team spirit among the street children participants.

“The games will help improve morale and promote the over-all being of the participants”, Silva underscored.

The 5-day sports celebration was successfully run –off.

Championship games such were then set off and facilitated by the Childhope’s staff and volunteers.
