Providing professional training and experiential classes on the sport Kabaddi to promote cross-cultural understanding
The venture aims to promote social inclusion by introducing Kabaddi, a popular sport in Southeast Asia, to Hong Kong. Kabaddi is played as a contest between two teams of seven each and its name originates from the Indian Tamil word which means holding hands.
Experiential classes for young people of diverse race, their families as well as corporates will be organised. In addition to playing Kabaddi, cross-cultural sharing activities such as tasting of South Asian food and appreciation of art and language of different races will be included in the classes. Youngsters from non-Chinese ethnic groups and local underprivileged families will be recruited and trained as ambassadors or assistant coaches to help in the classes.
To enhance multicultural integration, the venture will form a Multicultural Kabaddi Team with young players of diverse race. It will organise professional training courses in Kabaddi for young people interested while sponsorship will be provided for selected ones to acquire overseas professional qualification of Kabaddi coach and referee.
