THE STORY:

 

Help Protect the Children's Future (PCF) provide the 2016 Summer Arts and Sports Camp to two hundred underprivileged children in rural Haiti.  The Camp, free to its participants, is to be held the second week of August in Petite Rivière de Nippes for youth ranging in age from 7-17.  

A professional artist will provide daily instruction in different mediums to small groups of boys and girls.  The sports activities will focus on soccer drills and techniques, as well as an introduction to basketball and other games, with emphasis on sportsmanship.  Two rising 12th graders from the Washington International School in Washington DC, and founders of the school's PCF Club will travel to Haiti to share their knowledge and skills with the Haitian youth.  PCF’s coaches and volunteers (both local and from the US) will work jointly for the successful realization of the camp.  The Campers will be served a healthy meal each day.

Your support for the PCF Arts and Sports Summer Camp  will provide these children with a platform to: (a) be creative, express their thoughts and emotions and use their intuition through works of art; (b) learn good art skills, discover and strengthen their talents; (c) promote communication among them; (d) decrease the likelihood for their participation in criminal and/or harmful activities; (e) build strong social bonds with their peers which, in the long term, may result in creating better communities; and (f) provide them with an opportunity to be involved in healthy and fun activities. Please help us in making this happen.  Thank you in advance for your financial support.  We need funding to finance the following:

Printing of soccer T-shirts                                  $1,500

Daily nutritious meals for 5 days                       $4,000

Stipends for local coaches/ art instructor       $1,250

Transportation for youths for 5 days                  $750

Arts supplies                                                                   $800

Training equipment/medals/Team prizes          $500

Total                                                                                  $8,800

PCF is a Maryland based non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged children in rural areas of Haiti.  In these areas children lack access to education, health care and basic public services.  PCF’s members strive to make their lives healthier, happier and help them in finding ways for securing a brighter future.  To learn more about PCF, please visit: www.protectchildrenfuture.org.  Every dollar of your support goes directly to program expenses.
