Summary

This project is a combined effort between GloBall Giving and the Peace Corp in the Philippines and Dominican Republic to create sporting teams, clubs and leagues in remote, impoverished areas throughout the countries. By providing recreational games and activities we will be promoting a healthy and productive lifestyle while empowering children to become community leaders through sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork and trust.

Challenge

There is no sporting equipment available in these remote and impoverished towns and little or no opportunity for children to engage in positive physical activity. Without our combined effort to promote healthy lifestyle alternatives, children are more likely to engage in behavior that contributes to making poor choices that will effect their health and well being.

Solution

Through our combined efforts, we will provide the sporting equipment along with the support of volunteers to coach and challenge the children in these disadvantages communities with positive recreational alternatives promoting healthy lifestyle choices through physical activities.

Long-Term Impact

While children will have the opportunity to focus their energy on play, our team will be focusing their energy on empowering, inspiring and helping each child develop into contributing members and future leaders of their communities. This project is not just about giving a child a ball or bat or glove but how that ball or bat or glove can help a child learn critical life skills that will give them a chance at a better future through sports and play!!
