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.

Solution

The HS4D program is working to provide a platform where youth (boys & girls) benefit from having a safe, dependable and designated community space where they can participate in healthy activity and sport for development programs. Your generous contribution 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 while focusing on school attendance and performance.

Long-Term Impact

HS4D will provide trained local coaches who will work with each family to monitor each child's progress in the 5 elementary schools and in the HS4D soccer program. The program will benefit the whole village by reducing school dropout, youth violence, and promoting community cohesion, healthy lifestyle and teamwork. Your generous donation will provide a comprehensive offering of education and soccer training to more than 250 children in a community of more than 19,000 people.
