“MOVE”: a New Culture of Movement

GasanMamo Insurance believes that education is a journey that may take several years, nevertheless this journey is not complete without two important components being sports and cultural activities. Through this frame of thought, Malta’s leading Insurance company are happy to announce their support to MOVE, a registered non-profit organisation.

MOVE was set up in 2013 to promote innovation in sports and culture and the vision of the organisation is that each child and youth should have access to sports and culture and thus be empowered to live a healthier and happier life. MOVE pursues to encourage innovation in sports and culture as an educational and informative tool for all citizens and members of this organisation are constantly promoting highly-engaging purposely developed community activities to endorse positive experiences inspiring our future generations to be more physically active and leading them from mental blocks to mental breakthroughs.

“We are overwhelmed by the work being done by MOVE with children and young people coming from different levels of society. MOVE is an exclusive combination of mixed experiences whereas driven by the same passion and the constant urge for innovation and creativity. Both GasanMamo Insurance and MOVE share the same vision including that of promoting sports and culture as values treasured in cultural identities and addressing social problems creatively through innovation in sports and culture”, said Julian J. Mamo – Managing Director at GasanMamo Insurance.

GasanMamo believes that through this sponsorship and thanks to the sterling work being performed by MOVE, our society can overcome the walls that halt young people from being active and consequently create the right environment to upsurge participation in sport for community growth and social enclosure.

It is interesting to note that as a non-profit organisation, MOVE is collaborating with Valletta 2018 Foundation to promote community cohesion through street sports and culture.  A series of pop up sports and culture events will be taking place in various public spaces around Malta and Gozo through the programme “SHAKE IT”, purposely designed to promote a new culture of movement.  Earlier in May, MOVE and V18 attracted a diverse crowd in Pjazza San Gorg, Valletta and young people coming from different cultural backgrounds had the opportunity to play together in a fun and healthy environment as the capital city was transformed into a temporary playground as a group of highly motivated MCAST sports students took the initiative to set up a street soccer pitch and foot volley station in one of Valletta’s most popular squares.  The main objective behind this originality was to promote street games for community engagement.  Similar activities were recently organised in Marsa and in Gharb Gozo.

“Our mission is to create a social change through sports and culture.  We believe that the innovative use of community spaces through the appropriate positive activities like sports and culture can empower community cohesion. We also believe that this practice, once introduced, can change the cultural landscape and make difference to the community. This will not only support Valletta Capital of Culture but also sustain its legacy in the years to come” Cynthia Debono – MOVE Founder and Director

GasanMamo will continue to endorse these type of initiatives as it part of their strategy to support local organisations that shows keen interest in preserving our cultural identity and to promote sports through culture.
