Advocating the Rights of Children (ARC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Twitsal to formally endorse ARC as the social partner in TWIT7AL, an annual one-day futsal tournament organized by an association formed among Maldivian Twitter users. The MoU was signed by Mr. Ahmed Yaeesh, Organizer, on behalf of Twitsal and Ms. Zeena Zahid, Executive Director (Acting) on behalf of ARC, this afternoon.

Under this partnership, ARC and Twitsal will work in collaboration to support the children’s shelter Fiyavathi in Hulhumale’ which currently houses 85 children below the age of 9 years.  During this year’s event, Twitsal will identify and communicate with sponsors and donors to supply the items required by Fiyavathi as part of #TwitsalCares; a social initiative introduced during last year’s tournament to contribute to charitable causes within the community. As part of this agreement, donations are also open to the public during this year’s Twitsal which will be utilized through ARC’s Shelter Support Programme to carry out educational and recreational programmes for the children residing in Fiyavathi as well as capacity building trainings for the careworkers.

As a non-profit organization, ARC relies on continued support from the community and wishes to express sincere thanks to Twitsal for their commitment and dedication to the cause of promoting and protecting the rights of children.
