Thank you for considering to become a member of the Calabar Marathon Foundation !!!
We appreciate you taking the bold step to participate in this vision.
To function successfully in the adult world, youths benefit from opportunities presented through sport-related projects and programs adopted by the foundation. We prepare youths for maturity through experiential methods of learning which are often commonly used in our programs in sports settings.
We understand the travails confronting youths in Nigeria and Africa, a horrible state of deprivation where children and youths suffer all manner of neglect, disadvantages, vulnerability and underprivileged situations, not only because they have lost their parents/guardians, but because other life trials have placed them at a position of deficit in well being and livelihood without clearly defined hopes and expectations. A state of alarming hopelessness usually attributed UNFAIRLY to God or to ‘faith’.
This is what we have challenged ourselves as a foundation to fight, and provide windows of hope and expectations through our programs. We provide a vehicle of hope for a good future for young people.
We focus on coaching members and volunteers on the five basic competency areas identified by Pittman (1991) as essential for youth success in adulthood, in addition to the CM&CRF’s skill-development methods. Read More
