GOALS Haiti

Network Member

Haiti struggles with poverty, high rates of unemployment and natural disasters that have left destruction and devastation in their wake. In addition, many villages throughout Haiti have no schools, no paved roads, electricity, or water. Only 52.9% of adults in Haiti are literate and only 72% of children attend school.

 

GOALS Haiti is a grassroots organisation with the mission of advancing youth leadership through football and education to create stronger, healthier communities in rural Haiti.

 

When a child joins the GOALS programme, they attend classes to improve their literacy skills, have access to clean drinking water, receive a meal after each programme and participate in community projects: tree nursery, recycling, volunteerism - each of which lead to them becoming leaders in their communities.
