Soccer & Life Skills for 100 Kids in Haiti

by Futbol Mas


In 2016, Futbol Mas ran social-sports programs in disadvantage schools in Port Prince, Haiti. With this campaign we want to continue to sponsor our intervention in the "Institution Mixte Divine Providence" in the sector of Canaan - a slum born after the devastating earthquake in 2010. During 2017, as second consecutive year, 128 children will receive soccer and life skills classes per week, taught by a sports coach and a social science professional, over a period of 9 months.

Canaan is one of the largest slums in Haiti. More than 150.000 people arrived there after losing their houses in 2010. Canaan has little or basic infrastructure and formal educational programming. Children are constantly exposed to a number of risk factors that threaten their physical and mental health like delinquency, normalized violence and dysfunctional family systems (i.e). Recent hurricane Matthew that devastated the island increased the adversities which children must face every day.


Futbol Mas is an international NGO that works with socially vulnerable children by promoting resilience and happiness through social-sports workshops. These programs seek to strengthen personal ressources of children and the social capital of their communities. They also create protected spaces for childhood which aim to reduce the negative impact generated by risk factors which surround them. We want to give children a permanent chance to play, learn and increase their well-being and happiness.

Long-Term Impact

128 children will participate in Futbol Mas workshops and a social-sports league with other schools of Canaan. In addition, 12 young people and 17 teachers of the Divine Providence School will be trained in Futbol Mas methodology in order to acquire tools, which will allow them to create and maintain their own community programs once the intervention process is finished, making the program sustainable.
