What Makes HotFutbol Special
Many of the core values inherent in sport are compatible with the principles necessary for development and peace, such as fair play, cooperation, sharing and respect. Using sport as a medium to strengthen community provides opportunity for grassroots participation, leadership training, and economic revitalization.
HOTFUTBOL AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
The HotFutbol After School Program operates 4 afternoons per week and Saturdays. Children ages 6 through 16 years old participate in soccer training. Children are divided into age categories with assigned coaches that train them throughout the year. Friendly matches are played among the age groups. HotFutbol Teams travel to other fields in Haiti to play matches and participate in tournaments.
Through a new arrangement, Feed My Starving Children stores its shipping container at Park Izmery. This arrangement provides employment for community members as they load and unload food for food distribution throughout Haiti. HotFutbol employs a cook to prepare food each day for the children after soccer. In addition, the elderly, single parent families, and the very ill in the community are able to receive food each month.
Fall of 2018, brings several new sports to the park. A newly installed basketball court completed with the collaboration of the nonprofit, BUILDING BRIDGES WORLDWIDE, will allow for basketball, volleyball, futsol, and tennis to be played. The children will now have a choice of sports to play. Renting the court space will contribute to the long term sustainability efforts. Donate now to paint the court, put in solar lighting and fencing.
