This project aims to build 1 soccer field in the village of Lebrun and equip 250 youths in Haiti with soccer gear, promote healthy lifestyle, peer-to-peer training, and youth empowerment.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
More than 2000 youths displaced by the January 12, 2010 earthquake are living in the Lebrun Village and its surrounding communities, which have no paying jobs, activities or programs for youth, boys and girls. High rate of school dropout, lack of resources, lack of teachers and positive role models have a negative impact on the standard of education and lifestyle.
How will this project solve this problem?
The Project will provide 1 safe soccer field, gear and equipment, mentoring to children and youth, training in life skills, healthy lifestyle training, such as health education and HIV/AIDS, cholera prevention while focusing on school attendance and performance.
Potential Long Term Impact
Trained local volunteers will work with each family to monitor each child's progress in the 4 elementray schools and in the soccer program. The program will benefit the whole village by reducing school dropout, youth violence, and promoting community cohesion, healthy lifestyle and teamwork. Your donation provides a comprehensive offering of education and soccer training to 250 children, and youth job training and placement in a remote village in Haiti.
