Summary

This project provides sports activities and equipment to an underserved youth community. Projects include sports "Fun Days" for children ages 5 to 18. Providing sports equipment where none exist.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The children on the small island of St. John are lacking in both recreational facilities and equipment to play sports. There are over 250 children affected. Using Sports For Social Change can provide equipment to outfit teams and also provide sporting events throughout the year to accustom children to team sports and organizational activities which they are not normally subject to.

How will this project solve this problem?

There will now be equipment to start team sports and funding to provide multiple sports events throughout the year. Children will learn that team sports help with social attitudes toward working in groups and listening to leaders.

Potential Long Term Impact

The potential to provide lasting oportunities for children of all ages is very real. Through sports, we can affect the ways in which children positively interact with each others and society. Petty competitions, are replaced by heathy interactions.
