Manila: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC), international child-focused organisation World Vision and the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) teamed up for the ‘One Goal’ goal campaign on Sunday.
The ‘One Goal: Nutrition for Every Child’ campaign is a global initiative which focuses on promoting good nutrition among children through sports development through football and volleyball coaching lessons and a summer camp. Other countries with an active ‘One Goal’ programme include Australia and Malaysia.
“The goal of this campaign is to promote nutrition among children through sports development. It is our joint dream, with the two football organisations, to develop a new breed of Filipino football athletes that can compete in the international football arena," explained Jun Godornes, World Vision associate director for public engagement.
The Philippine launch for ‘One Goal’ was carried out at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) University Field, as the AFC returns to the Philippines to celebrate its 60th Anniversary and Annual Awards gala event also on Sunday.
