Athletic of Haiti
Imagine how the eagle soars across the sky. His glide a graceful
almost timeless encounter with heaven. Now, take a moment, only a moment to capture the essence of your eagle.
Since 1995, Athletic of Haiti has aimed its efforts
toward the underpriveleged youth of Haiti. This sports center
located in Drouillard, at the oustskirt of Port-Au-Prince,
Haiti's capital ignites the energy of youth ranging from ages
7-20. Athletic of Haiti's goal is to empower, motivate,
lend discipline and challenge students weekly through athletic
competition, a first for Haitians most underpriveleged arena.
A dedicated staff of 30 operates the center 6 days a week (including
school vacations) providing approximately 300 children with a hot
Funds from private donations and sponsorships assist with the cost
of operation, which are approximately 10,000 US dollars a month.
Physical education is practically unavailable within Haiti's school
system. Athletic of Haiti invisions plans of
expansion which will offer tennis courts and an Olympic size
swimming pool to accomodate more children. Imagine the spirit
of these youngsters soaring into their hopes and dreams knowing
the sky has no limit.
Lack of opportunity systematically clips the wings of the
uneducated and the underpriveleged. As a steadfast source of
positive inspiration to the young of Haiti, Athletic Of Haiti
extends opportunity, hope, and a chance to accomplish ones'
dreams. Children imagine all possibilities once exposed to
impossibilities; dreams become reality.
