JAGUH RF Football for Good project in Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia

17 October 2023
Sports is a powerful tool. It allows young minds to soar, inclusivity to bloom, and prejudices to subside, often breaking barriers with every stride. Built on this, Jaguh RF Programme is a groundbreaking collaboration between our social impact initiative, RYTHM Foundation (RF) and its long-standing partner, ASA Foundation (ASAF). This programme combines football and education to equip youth with essential life skills and capacity-building opportunities. And the aim this year is to train and empower 80 talented young boys and girls in Malaysia! ASAF Founder Lee Hawkins recently joined Latha Thangaraja – former Malaysian women's football player and RF's Programme Manager, Keshika Subbarao – Football Pundit and Coach, at a groundwork initiation session with the bright young minds of SMK Vivekananda Secondary School in Malaysia. They shared inspiring personal stories, challenges and hopes for equal gender participation in sports.
