"കോവളം ഫുട്ബോൾ ക്ലബ്ബിലേകു സ്വാഗതം"
Last year, Mathew/Sally Educational Trust (MSET) launched a scheme to impart quality education and accommodation to our players by placing seven boys in a school hostel. Their stamina improved: they played better. With more time for homework, they fared better in school too.
So, MSET has committed to a 5-year Plan to increase the residents to 120 evenly distributed from 1st to 12th Grades; and to 240 by the end of the 2nd 5-year Plan making them still better players, more importantly preparing them for a life-after- football.
We leased a house for two years. Fifteen boys, besides free education up to a University degree, will receive better food, expert coaching in football and individual tutoring. We will have special classes for social responsibilities and skills, table manners, hygiene, spoken English and computer literacy.
They will be covered by our Group Health Insurance Plan.
With a post graduate diploma in Computer Applications, SUJA, a B. Ed. Graduate runs her own tutorial with over twenty children from various schools and grades. Suja will help the boys with their homework and will hold weekly classes on Spoken English and Computer Literacy.
They will also be taught social responsibilities and skills, hygiene, manners.
|From fishing daily-wage workers, Alan and Jaison are Kerala University players, now doing their degree courses in NSS College, Dhanuvachapuram.
They are our living-in Monitors and Role Models for the boys.
PATRONS are by invitation, in order to establish our bonafides.
FOUNDING PATRONS are those who donated Rs.25L.
At least another 7 have to be added if we want to realize our dream KFC Campus.
ADVISORY STEERING COMMITTEE is also to add to our credibility. Of the six 1L. donors to KFF that we invited to this Committee, only Shaji Thomas has accepted so far. More will be added.
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE is to set up the Policies, Plans, Projects, etc.
MANAGING COMMITTEE is the body that keeps KFC going.
TJM’s role is to co-ordinate various functions executed by the team. Dr. Jayakumar is the Manager/Owner of the Arumanoor School, where our boarders will be attending. Sam will take care of our Accreditations, Associations filings, Tournaments registrations, Liason with TDFA, KFA, AIFA, etc. ER will handle social network and press relations. He will also concentrate on Coaching and of the Academy, assisted by Elgin and Huny. To compensate for their time and efforts, 95% of the fees collected by the Academy will be paid to Ebin for distribution among the coaches from within or out of KFC.
From August 1st, all money collected by the Academy will be deposited in the KFC bank account. The coaches’ share will be paid out on the last working day of the month.
Elgin will manage the KFC teams: their supplies, tournament participations, players’ registration, etc. He will also co-ordinate the grassroots programs: by coaching at the Technopark school and Huny at the Kowdiar school. Elbin will visit both the schools periodically. We will negotiate with the owners of these two schools about charging the participants and the revenue minus 5% will be paid to the three coaches equally. We will try to enlist more schools in this program. Tony will continue managing the website. To keep it accurate and up to date, it is absolutely necessary that we let him know our activities constantly and instantly.
He will also direct our foreign liasoning raising funds, arranging coaches from UK and to get our outstanding boys in the football camps there. Huny will be in sole charge of the Hostel, actively supported by Elbin. Anooj will continue helping us to produce publicity materials.
