BENEFITING: CHAMPIONS IN ACTION
EVENT DATE: Jul 07, 2013
I am so grateful to have been presented with an opportunity to volunteer at a summer youth soccer camp in Guatemala on July 21st-26th. The youth soccer camp is put together by Champions in Action. At Champions’s summer soccer camps, the youth are connected and build relationships with mentors who can make a difference in their lives. Mentors provide the youth with friendship, encouragement, sound advice, and a safe place to be themselves.
Guatemala is currently saturated with crime, illegal drug trafficking, and heavy gang participation. It is at the epicenter of the gang crisis, with one of the highest murder rates in the world. Due to the gangs preying on the youth, they have to grow up quickly and be constantly on guard. A lot of the youth have tough circumstances working against them. Many Guatemalan youth lack the direction, guidance, and access to the education they need in order to reach their full potential. They also lack role models to support and encourage them in their lives.
In order to participate in the trip to Guatemala, I need to raise $1400 by July 7th. This includes food, housing, all travel expenses and a scholarship for a youth to attend the camp.
I believe God is faithful and has called me to this trip. I know that He will provide for my need. Would you consider participating in my trip financially? Any gift that you give will be tax-deductible.
