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.


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.

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.
