Nee Soon GRC launched the second year of the Nee Soon Football and Study Programme. This programme lets lower-income kids experience soccer training with Fandi Ahmad, but only if they also complete a study-mentorship and skills development programme. In its second year, the programme has expanded to 95 kids, who will be joined by 30 others from the Nee Soon Central Children’s Football League.
Nee Soon GRC grassroots organisations sponsor this programme, while Chong Pang Dymon Asia scholarship recipients volunteer as teachers. Yishun Junior College and Chong Pang CC provide the venues for training and studies. Minister K Shanmugam, Assoc. Prof. Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim and Er. Dr. Lee Bee Wah attended the launch on the 13th of March.
