Educational, Welfare & Research Foundation Malaysia (EWRF) and Kabaddi Association of Malaysia (KAM) have signed an agreement to popularise and develop Kabaddi among Malaysian youth.

Presidents Govindasamy Annamalai, representing EWRF, and Sathasivam Munisamy, representing KAM, signed the agreement at the EWRF office.

One of India’s traditional sports, Kabaddi was incorporated as a component of competitions in South-East Asia and the Olympics.

Since 2000, Kabaddi has gained recognition at the national level in Malaysia and is still being played today.

The agreement will promote Kabaddi in EWRF’s civil society intervention (CSI) initiative, which is a 20-week student transformation programme.

The Kabbadi training will be provided to selected students through EWRF’s CSI sports programme in collaboration with KAM.

The Kabaddi training will be conducted by KAM’s qualified instructors at CSI centres across the country.

The CSI programmes and Kabaddi training are provided free of charge.

EWRF was founded in 1978 as a non-profit and non-governmental organisation dedicated to serve the marginalised, vulnerable and impoverished communities in Malaysia by empowering underperforming and socially challenged students.
