Rebuild Marawi

Thousands of children suffer at the devastating effects of war brought about by ISIS-inspired insurgents, with over 350,000 people displaced and traumatised.

We will build football facilities to help children with their psychosocial development and education.

January 2017 - January 2022

  • Need


    The dangers of radicalisation and violent extremism.


    We set up football cages to popularise the sport thus giving children safe accessibility and opportunity to play, learn and develop.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Raise funds to build football cages.


    » Use football as a platform to educate children of the signs of radicalisation, teach positive values, build peace and promote interfaith collaboration

    What success will look like

    Being able to build the facility, increase participation and numbers of teams and coaches educated.

  • Impact


    Create a football culture and an identity for the children. Also using the facility to identify talent and assist children and families in obtaining athletic scholarships nationally and internationally.


    Socio-political disturbances and natural disasters like earthquakes and typhoons.

    Since we have experienced a very strong typhoon that twisted the metal of the cage, we had designed a typhoon proof facility that is able to withstand strong winds.

    Our structures are overseen by experienced engineers during the build and finalisation.


    Upon implementation, we produce visual documentation and depending on the size of the facility, possible national publicity through social media, print and TV.

    We create a package that will be sent directly to the donors to show how their money was spent efficiently and effectively.
