Athletics

Lives of young people can be drastically changed for the good when they become involved in an excellent, Christ-centered sports program. As they are trained, mentored, challenged and taught, they gain confidence, strength, determination, and purpose.  We believe that connecting young people with adults who love the Lord, who care about them, and who have skills they can pass on, is one of the best ways to help them improve their own futures.  And we feel that sports is one of the best avenues to reaching these kids.

For the past couple years, Project Living Hope has been helping run an athletic program for about 200 youth in two different communities.  In those programs boys and girls are being trained in soccer and basketball and are being given opportunities for development that they would not otherwise be afforded.  They benefit from Christian mentorship and participate in tournaments, sports camps, outreach trips, and retreats.  Project Living Hope is no longer involved with that program but we are making preparations to launch new programs in Camp Marie and neighboring communities.  We empower Haitians to start new programs and provide coaches training for them.  There are numerous ways that people can get involved and we'd love to hear from you about your interests.
