Exceptional people: Coaching at-risk children
His day job involves organising events and conferences for companies, but on Thursday nights, Mr Irza Fauzan Suprapto, 35, is a football coach at a street soccer court near Chin Swee Road.
For each session, Mr Irza puts about 20 children through various football drills before ending with a friendly match.
The football training is one of many initiatives by Catch Plus, an after-school programme run by the Kreta Ayer-Kim Seng Citizens' Consultative Committee.
Other than football, Catch Plus also works with community partners such as Mendaki, Rotaract Club and Heartware Network to provide other programmes - including tuition and reading and literacy classes.
