September 2023 , Vision News      3 min read




It was a sunny Saturday, 29 July, filled with excitement and cheers at the Dewan Serbaguna MBPJ grounds! It was no ordinary day, but a special event where young participants of World Vision Malaysia’s Eat Right to Play Right (ERTPR) programme from People's Housing Programme (PPR) Lembah Subang 2 came together for a graduation tournament.


This tournament marked the end of their regular badminton and nutrition sessions, and it was a big deal! Over 100 people, including children, parents, helpful volunteers, and kind donors like UOB Malaysia, joined in the fun to see these young talents in action. The children, who had diligently attended regular ERTPR activities, donned their sportswear and were ready to show off their badminton skills in singles and doubles matches.


Sri, a dedicated volunteer coach said, “I’m really proud of how much better they had become. They played with better techniques, understood the rules of the game, and showed more confidence. All the hard work they put in during the practice sessions paid off.”


The tournament wasn't just about the competition; it was a holistic celebration of growth, camaraderie, and learning. Between matches, the children cheered for their friends and fellow participants. They also had fun at the booths, offering nutrition-focused games and shuttlecock challenges. These engaging activities not only added a touch of playful entertainment but also served as a valuable opportunity for the children to reinforce the importance of balanced nutrition in their lives.



The joyful participants were joined by representatives of UOB Malaysia (front row, second and third from right) and some World Vision staff members.


“My sons love sports, but they didn't always have someone to teach them. Because of ERTPR, I see a big improvement in their skills. I’m really thankful for the programme and happy that my children got the chance to be a part of it!” said a mother of the participants.


The graduation tournament was a success! It marked not only an end but also the beginning of a journey towards nurturing our children's health through their love for sports.
