A New Year of Playing in Port au Prince

Getting ready for a game
Getting ready for a game

Hello all,

Since we posted this project on Global Giving, the growth of our soccer programme has delighted us. With your help we’ve provided shoes, uniforms, balls, and goals. While we’ve only been able to fund a few teams to date, the results are already showing.

Teams generally play during the summer months, but this year they decided to organise a mini championship over Christmas as well. More than 100 youths turned out to compete during their break from school.

Again and again we hear the same thing from the youths who play in the league your donations support: Football seems like a small thing, but it brings hope and a positive outlet for youths who need it most.

As we move into 2011, we’re hoping to provide a fresh start for all 12 of the teams your donations will support.

Please tell a friend about this project and help us keep youths playing in Port au Prince, and thanks so much for your support!
