The population we serve faces complex barriers to accessing ladders of opportunity. Those same barriers are what keep them off of teams, out of leagues, and unable to access programs that could support them to reach their full potential. Addressing one barrier alone is a bandaid. Barriers stack up on one another and feel insurmountable. As you know there isn’t a better way to inspire children and create positive role models than to get them engaged in sport. In Africa, we are tapping into the local love for Soccer and create a yearly tournament. At the end of the tournament, all participants will receive Solar Lanterns instead of trophies thereby bringing solar lights to their homes in the settlement.
