Youth athletes are the backbone of any sport. It is instrumental to develop this group of athletes as part of a succession plan. Sponsor-A-Kid is an initiative to provide a platform for all aspiring Silat athletes to have an opportunity to represent the country both locally and internationally.
In reality, not everyone has the same opportunity and means to chase their dream. Being a student-athlete has its own fair share of challenges. Finance is a major part of it. This initiative targets a specific group of athletes who are underprivileged but portray the potential and dedication to excel in the sport. Singapore Silat Federation will sponsor this student in their journey to be an elite athlete.
Over the years, we have seen students who dropped out of training, not due to interest or commitment but rather financial ability. We at Silat Federation share the same sentiment as them and have formulated this campaign to provide these students with unparalleled opportunities. At the same time, we hope Silat Federation will unearth more potential World Champions.
The funds collected will be utilized in the year 2023. We will open application in the first quarter of 2023 and provide a sponsorship package for them in that year. We target to provide sponsorship to 100 student-athletes. Your donation will go a long way in making this a reality.
The campaign will run from the 1st of November 2022 until the 25th of December 2022, and you can donate through the link here: https://www.giving.sg/singapore-silat-federation/sponsor_a_kid_to_learn_silat_and_sport.
