SCOPE FOR CHANGE was conceived during the trying time of the pandemic to help alleviate pain, suffering, and even boredom of the people.
This is a tournament that provides players with an opportunity to win a total of up to EIGHTY THOUSAND PESOS (PHP 80,000,00) where the majority of the winnings were given to the beneficiaries/charities of their choice.
This innovative idea of returning back to the community was started by myself, Kyler Hewitt Sy. I am a 15 year old student studying in an international school here in the Philippines. Being an avid gamer, I wanted to translate my passion for esports to bolster the hope of the Filipino people in these times of financial and emotional turmoil. I started this project to coalesce elements of esports and charity. This is combining fun and camaraderie while returning gratitude to the heroes in our society during this pandemic.
