THE opportunity to pose with the Premier League trophy in Malaysia motivated young and old alike.

It was on display at Dignity for Children Foundation’s premises in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, thanks to Manchester City’s Cityzens Giving Programme.

Dignity hosted the trophy as it made its way round the world as part of Manchester City’s Global Trophy Tour to celebrate the club’s 2021/22 Premier League victory and fourth title win in five years.

Dignity, which runs its own football competition, called The Faisal Cup since 2006, invited its co-founders, coaches, players/students and partners to the viewing.

The Faisal Cup brings together marginalised and refugee children to play football in a recognised competition.

Through the Faisal Cup, Dignity promotes social inclusion and equality. From the initial three teams, it now has 155.

Fifteen-year-old footballer Ezra Van Lian Ceu was excited to see the trophy in real life and for the chance to take photos with it.

“I hope that one day I can play in an actual Premier League game. Now, I want to play well in the Faisal Cup.”

Dignity has been collaborating with Manchester City on its Cityzens Giving Programme since 2015.

Cityzens Giving provides funds for Dignity’s peace camps, football training and community football programme and invites participants to its Young Leader Summit held in Manchester, England annually.

To date, 13 young leaders from Dignity have participated in the summit.
