Back in July 2015, Sport Management Council of the Philippines (SportPhil) organized an all-important 3-day workshop, called “RePLAY, ReLIVE, ReCREATE: Community Engagement through Sports,” mainly for psychosocial intervention based on what happened in Tacloban since the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013.
Led by SportPhil’s Geraldine Go-Bernardo (Sport Management), Dr. Marissa Adviento, (Sports Psychology), and Professor Thor Manlangit (Sports Science), the event trained a total of 83 teachers and 200 students—representing 45 schools from Leyte and Samar, Philippines—on the principles and methodology of using Inclusive Sport.
Beyond the program, the teachers will execute their action plans towards promoting play, games and sport for their schools and communities—a feat that can potentially enhance the lives of 20,000+ children.
