Michael's Jerry Can Challenge
"I want to raise money for the Kefa Project due to the fact that they don't have equipment, education and money as accessible as we do in the United States. We take it for granted and these guys are working very hard with limited opportunities. I hope the donations we make to this group helps them to do great things."
Isaac has decided to help the Kefa Project in Rwanda in two ways! First, by raising money for kids graduating from our boarding soccer academy, which houses, feeds, trains, and educates kids from the streets, a landfill, and other hard backgrounds. The money will help them to follow the next steps in their lives like going to college or starting small businesses. Second, Isaac is collecting equipment so that kids staying in our soccer programs can continue to play. Check out how you can join him:
How Isaac Found Us
Isaac learned about the athletes from Rwanda from a soccer ball made out of banana leafs that sits on the mantle of his home. Many kids in Rwanda make their own soccer balls - most commonly out of plastic bags and sometimes banana leafs to play anywhere that they can. He wanted kids on our teams to have more quality soccer balls to play with.
Isaac learned about the different ways that our athletes train on the fields. He learned how at our academy we bring jerry cans full of water that our athletes can do dozen of exercises as they grow stronger and develop to compete against other athletes in Rwanda. Jerry cans are usually used in Rwanda to carry water from wells to homes.
Isaac found out that despite the differences in equipment, there are many similarities between the kids and himself - even including the use of FMS testing. He wanted to be part of what was happening in Rwanda!
How Your Donations Will Impact Our Kids Lives
Your donations will go directly towards helping kids who grew up homeless, on the streets, and from other impoverished families to either go to college or to begin working. We have been with these boys for over four years - living with them, training them, and educating them - and have gotten to see phenomenal growth in every aspect of their lives.
