BUILDING BRIDGES WORLDWIDE's Fundraiser:

Building Bridges Worldwide - Port-au-Prince, Haiti 2017 Project

BUILDING BRIDGES WORLDWIDE's Photo

THE STORY:

Building Bridges is excited to announce a new partnership with the US- and Haiti-based HotFutbol and is looking for volunteers and/or donations to kick off this new chapter in January 2017.  We’ll travel to Port-au-Prince, Haiti over Martin Luther King weekend to support HotFutbol’s programs to transform young lives.

HotFutbol is entering its 10th year in Haiti and its 4th at Park Izmery, an inner city recreational space in Port-Au-Prince that serves hundreds of kids through an after school soccer program.  Run by two alumni from the Holy Cross class of 1974, HotFutbol focuses on education, health, and community and instills leadership, discipline, and a culture of giving back. 

HotFutbol recognized years ago that many charitable efforts lose momentum and effectiveness over time because they incubate dependent behavior among recipients and lead to fatigue among donors. Many charitable efforts in Haiti are no exception.  But HotFutbol has adapted an entrepreneurial and sustainable model to support the needs of the community that surrounds the Park. 

Now, HotFutbol is building on its success by partnering with Building Bridges to enlarge and refurbish the Park Izmery's multi-sport facilities.  In January, a coalition of local Haitian workers, HotFutbol employees, and BBW volunteers will come together at the park to rebuild a bigger, "state of the art" playing surface with space for basketball, volleyball, tennis, badminton, and the Haitian game futsal.  

Building Bridges will take the lead to form the group and develop funding for the project, with HotFutbol organizing the local workforce and construction resources.  The result will be a modern facility to support organized usage, including rentals to recreational, league, and tournament play that can provide new income streams for the program.  Over time, additional components of the Park will be improved in the same manner, advancing HotFutbol’s model of sustainable programming in an inner city community.
