Corporate Social Responsibility


Every Court Can Dream

Our advocacy is to fix, clean, and refurbish basketball courts within local communities. Then, as Kings of the Court’s core competency, we will start holding basketball leagues, clinics, and seminars within these communities so that kids and adults would develop good habits we learn from sports, and to veer away from vices. In addition, it will be our team’s opportunity to transfer knowledge and teach them basketball operations, refereeing, table officiating, etc. in an effort to open employment opportunities for them.

"My love for basketball doesn't end when playtime is over. It extends to the smell of the ball, the friendships made through teamwork, charming outdoor courts, up to that feeling when you know you've improved your game through hardwork, or loss. This love is for the culture, and it extends not only to me, but for everybody who feels the same. This is why I do what I do, for basketball, for the culture."
- Dwight Avila (Project Lead)


"I do what I do because this is where my mind, body and soul want to take me."
- Mr. Pinoy Hoops Mike Swift


Mission

Push forth empowerment activities for the local community.

Our three (3) main objectives are to help alleviate the following:

Vices and Drugs

To ensure that the residents of these local communities have regular activities to veer away from vices. Estimated drug users in the Philippines is 1.3 Million. The profile are 20-29 years old, where the ratio of male is to female users is a whopping 10:12. Their educational attainment is on the high school level.

Out-of-School Youth

To help the youth develop good habits, and teach them the values we learn from sports. This somehow will give them education that they are not able to learn because they cannot attend school.

One in every 10 Filipinos aged 6 to 24 years is an out of school child and youth, a survey of the Philippine Statistics Authority showed. The 2016 Annual Poverty Indicators Survey (APIS) showed the country has about 3.8 million out-of-school children and youth or about 10 percent of the 39 million Filipinos with age range six to 24 years old.

Unemployment

Transfer knowledge and teach them basketball operations, refereeing, table officiating, etc. in an effort to open employment opportunities for them.

According to a 2018 study, Regions with lowest employment rates were National Capital Region (NCR) (92.2%)4 Among the unemployed persons in January 2018, 65.5 percent were males. Of the total unemployed, the age group 15 to 24 years comprised 43.2 percent, while the age group 25 to 34, 31.1 percent. Currently, 2.2 million are unemployed in the Philippines.

Vision

As of March 31, 2018, there is a listed 42,044 Barangays in the Philippines.

We envision having atleast 1% of it or 420 barangays at the end of year 5, where these have regular events that range from tournaments, clinics, and seminars with a year-end thanksgiving.
