20 years ago, CNN hero Boby Duval founded a shelter for kids livng in extreme poverty in Haiti, L'Athletique D'Haiti, (Athletics of Haiti in English).  Athletics of Haiti is a non-profit that provides a haven of sports, coaching, schooling, and meals for over 2000 youth from 6 to 19 years old.  Over the past 20 years, 10,000 kids have been saved from gang violence, drugs and starvation, and been schooled and allowed to become athletes instead of criminals.  Boby Duval and Athletics of Haiti have been documented by CNN and HBO and recognized by the Clinton Global Initiative, FIFA and the United Nations for its commitments to improve the life of kids in desperate circumstances in one of the poorest countries in the world, Haiti.

For 3 years after the devasting Earthquake, Athletics of Haiti struggled to rebuild and take on more kids who were left homeless. 

Today, in November 2013, we are weeks from running out of money to feed the kids and to pay our teachers and coaches because our resources are exhausted.   After 20 years we may be forced to close our doors on these kids who have nowhere else to go.

 

URGENT CALL FOR HELP! 

We need your help urgently to keep Athletic of Haiti open.  Any donation will help.  For the price of the cup of coffee, you can make a difference. 

Please donate and ask your friends to help. To learn more about the importance of this programs to the kids, please visit www.sportaccess.org or www.lathletiquedhaiti.org
