Sakkarin Seema, the founder of Klong Toh Lem Academy Foundation faced a challenge of children not coming to the local school often ” The kids were not coming to school much and I asked them what would they like to do instead. To which they replied we wanna play football ⚽️!
Well now we have a football team Klong Toh Lem FC, children happily take their assigned roles like a coach, manager, and captain. They even collect money between them and plan their next investment to buy more equipment for their team. Of course, we work with them to plan accordingly. ”
Sakkarin believes that you can teach management, leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship ? even with a football ⚽️ team. This kind of practical education lasts for a lifetime and manages to do to an extent what schooling does, but for kids who love football, it’s much more fun!
