WE PLAY FOR HOPE
A common vision of multiple independent organizations to transform vulnerable youth.
Sports For Change
Play For Hope dreams of a world where every child, every street kid, and every orphan can have positive adult mentorship and can be given a chance for the future. We use sports, like basketball and soccer (football), to create opportunities to change lives. We believe that AIDS and genocide do not have to define Rwanda or Africa. Hope and peace are possible. Sports provide an outlet for children to learn about themselves and their passions and to learn that they can make an impact in the world.
We believe that nonprofits and charities must find new ways to create sustainability where they work. Empowering individuals rather than creating dependence. It is our goal to create business ventures and to seek local sponsorships and grants so that local independent, autonomous NGOs run by nationals can create the change their countries need.
Every child needs basic necessities to survive including food, shelter, and clean water. We believe that mentorship and positive adult love is as vital to child's future as these necessities. To this end we are working to mentor and care for forgotten youth.
Hope is not a catchphrase to us or a trendy word. It is an ability for every child to know that a better future is attainable. Hope is as much as about dreams as real opportunities for a child to change their lives. And it is an ability above all for a child to know they are loved both by adults around them and by God.
