Inspiring the next generation - more than soccer.
Borneo Football International Foundation (BFIF) had humble beginnings.
Ten years ago our Subud brother, Bachrun Bustillo, started kicking a football around after school with kids from Rungan Sari’s school (Kalimantan). The kids loved it. More joined in.
Now over 3,000 children across the region benefit from BFIF’s programs.
This amazing initiative offers more than football training. BFIF provides health and nutrition programs, COVID food packages, training in financial literacy, jobs skills, exploration of social values, and English language classes. It is a vehicle to create hope, skills and attitudes to enable these kids to grow as human beings, contribute to their community, and eventually support their own families. Some have gone on to become coaches and undertake higher education.
Dharma Care has raised $79,390 towards the program over the last four years.
BFIF’s latest project is building an indoor stadium that will allow programs to run even during the long wet season, plus provide a professional regional venue. It will also be a great additional venue for Subud World Congress in 2024.
Amazingly, out of the local forest this enormous structure is emerging.
The project is currently on schedule but needs a final injection of funds from around the world to get it over the line. With your help, Dharma Care is raising a further $76,000 by the end of November as its contribution.
But this project is not about buildings; it’s about kids.
