Give for the Goal 2019 Current Action!
Give for the Goal is pleased to announce an alliance with Reunion Sportive d’Haiti. We are collecting new and lightly used cleats and balls for Project Haiti Summer Camp 2019.
Reunion Sportive Summer Camp in Haiti, helps more than 2,000 boys and girls, ages 8-22. Youth Soccer and Leadership Summer Camp is the only local program available to the children and youth outside of the school system.
Most of the 36 communities served are rural, isolated and greatly underserved. Local residents face many challenges including extreme poverty. The catastrophic devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew destroyed over 90% of the homes in some areas causing most families to struggle to meet their basic needs. Many young people in the region have suffered from malnutrition and learning loss. The youth are also vulnerable to violence and influence of gangs.
At the Summer Camp, the kids are safe and engaged in sporting and academically enriching activities, as well as in receiving healthy meals and an opportunity to interact with one another. They work as part of a team and help to set goals and plan activities with others. The program also gives the kids a chance to participate in community projects together. They will plant trees to reverse the environmental degradation. They make new friends, learn about their lives, and celebrate their similarities and their differences.
Reunion Sportive d’Haiti is a nonprofit in the US dedicated to helping youth in Haiti.
In addition to soccer, Reunion Sportive d’Haiti undertakes projects to support Haiti including clean water, reforestation, girls schools, and anti hunger projects. For more information please visit www.rshaiti.org.
