BENEFITING: HUMAN DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE
The Human Development League’s School of Champions is the embodiment of our mission. It is more of a concept than a physical school building. Those who enter the School of Champions will be given the unique opportunity to participate in a program that uses sport as a vehicle to teach important life skills together with scholarships for academic education that will help transform them into champions–in sport and in life.
The School of Champions will begin initially in Madagascar and will be available to both girls and boys. Eventually, as resources permit, we hope to be able to launch similar programs in other developing countries and disadvantaged communities in developed countries throughout the world using a variety of sports from football (soccer), American football, rugby, and basketball to biking, surfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding.
The Human Development League, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has a two-part mission: (1) teach life skills and character development to young and underprivileged people all over the world through amateur sports instruction and competition and (2) promote the benefits of and provide financial support for academic education.
The Human Development League believes that using sports and education together is a powerful way to help people reach their potential.
Because of the devastating impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the developing world and among marginalized populations, HIV-prevention education using sport-based activities is an important part of our life skills training
