for Sports Outreach
The purpose of undertaking these initiatives for
youths is to help them to discover their God given potentials and
to arouse their inner spiritual strength and character development,
building healthy relationships and provide sporting skills development
for personal life.
If youth cannot find guidance, encouragement and
support from the world and their families, ROGGSOI must be to them
an alternative community [family] where they can find hope, guidance
and support to enable them live a meaningful life.
Given room to youth to occupy in the society is
an important catalyst for the youth's transformation and this develops
them spiritually, socially and skillfully. If the society cannot
provide alternatives, Satan and the world will always have wrong,
destructive offers to our youths.
The say, that "an idle hand is the workshop
of the devil" must inspire us to care and reach out to the
youth. Since they are the targets of the Devil. Failure to design
youth empowerment programs will be giving our youth over to temptation
of getting involved in crime, violence, drug abuse, gambling, alcoholism,
and sexual immorality. This is particularly anxious for those many
youths who did not manage to go far with studies due to their parent's
The society needs to take advantage of youth's eagerness
to learn, especially those youth, who are committed and involved
in sporting activities and have displayed their potentials, to learn
sport skills in order to help the society and their communities,
such as Basketball, Athletics, Handball, Scrabble, Football, Volleyball
and Table Tennis etc.
Physical activity is vital to the holistic development
of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional
health. The benefits of sport reach beyond the impact on physical
well-being and the value of the educational benefits of sport should
not be under-estimated.
