BENEFITING: SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS
After a year of perusing playing soccer I have decided to hang up the soccer boots and dive into my next journey! This June I will be heading to Uganda for a year of serving as a Team Leader for Soccer Without Borders, (SWB). After spending the off season volunteering for SWB I decided to apply to become a part of their team overseas. "The Soccer Without Borders MISSION is to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing under-served youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success." This mission has inspired me to give back to the sport that has given me my best friends, taken me around the country, a free education, a job, and a lifetime of experiences.
In Uganda I will be working with urban refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Sudan, and Somalia to integrate them with their Ugandan peers through education and soccer. However, I can not do this alone. All my time in Uganda will be volunteer based so I need the help of donations in order to provide my services to these refugees. All of your donations will go to my living expenses in Uganda so that I can help make an impact.
Thank you to everyone that makes this experience possible!
