What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Haitian Sports Foundation (HSF) is a philanthropic non-profit organization which was established in July, 2006 to serve the town of Anse-á-Veau and the surrounding rural community, located in the southern corridor of Haiti in the region of Nippes. The arrondissement of Anse-à-Veau has a total population of 150,000 inhabitants, of which nearly 60,000 are under 18 years of age. (This region was severely damaged by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.) HSF uses sports and education as a means to enhance the quality of life for the children and youth of this region. In Haiti many of youth who fail secondary schooling remain unskilled and become a nuisance to society. They become frustrated and dream to leave the country in search of a better “nirvana” abroad. Currently, 70% of the total population is unemployed for a population of 65% of youth and a four-year university study completion does not guarantee a secure job anywhere.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Health Care Initiative

Provide basic healthcare to less fortunate in the South of Haiti; primarily the Nippes region.
On May 4th, 2019, we officially opened our clinic to serve the Anse-à-Veau areas with one general doctor and two nurses. Eighty-seven people showed up for basic medical consultation. We had to close the gate and painfully let many others without seeing the medical staff. The need is huge and we were really blown away to see older women walking down the rocking road to receive basic care as well as mother walking down and protecting their baby against the grueling sun with a note book serve as umbrella was “gut crushing”. For now, such service will be provided once a month until we have the capacity to extend the frequency.
We are now ready to develop partnership with larger institutions. The facility is available for use. The need is huge. Please help.

Population(s) Served

On May 5th, 2019 we inaugurated a basketball court which was donated by Basket Plus from the Basketball team of the University of Ottawa. Against all odds, nine members of the team came to Haiti from April 29th, 2019 through May 6th 2019 to complete the construction of the court. The court is dedicated to the children of the Nippes region to facilitate interschool and inter regional competitions.
The facility is ready. We weed expert to develop local both men/women coaches and referees in order to introduce Basketball in that region.

Population(s) Served

Haitian Sports Foundation (HSF) requests supportive funding for the purpose of establishing a trade school to serve the community of Anse-à-Veau, in the Southern tier of Haiti. The school will provide vocational training for the youth of this region, in the trades of carpentry, masonry, electricity and solar energy technology. The curriculum will be enhanced with a strong focus on entrepreneurship. HSF's objective is to certify and graduate students who will be proficient in their prospective disciplines and equipped to establish their own businesses using the entrepreneurial skills they acquire along with the trade skills.

Our goal for Haiti Renaissance: Impact 2021 Employment Readiness is to graduate the new trade school's first 50 students by 2021, fully prepared to enter the workforce and start their own businesses. This coincides with the 300th Anniversary of the Town of Anse-à-Veau.

Our goal is to prioritize the entrepreneurship spirit and hands-on training in the south of Haiti by providing opportunity to obtain the knowledge and skills to allow men/women to open businesses, provide much needed services and ultimately stay in their country.

Population(s) Served

Instill the discipline of martial arts to prevent childhood delinquency.
Develop boys and girls to becoming good citizens.
HSF has established and maintained significant relationships with community entities which share our commitment to equipping our youth with the skills, education and individual development needed to stay in the country and participate in its revitalization. These partnerships have been developed over the past 5 years as HSF provided the community’s children with martial arts, sports programs and the arts. The children have acquired leadership and self-discipline skills through these programs.
The Anse-à-Veau Parents Association has provided invaluable assistance over the past five years, including guidance in making sure the HSF programs are meeting the needs of the children of the community. They were supportive throughout the construction of the Sports Complex and the medical clinic, in the establishment of the Computer Lab, and the other educational offerings supplementing the sports programs. The Parents Association is offering its continuing support through the trade school establishment process, including recruitment and training of instructors, curriculum focus, and student application/enrollment process. This relationship is strong and reciprocal.

TWO MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS FRO 2019:
1) Clinic in full operation
2) Basketball Court for kids

Haitian Sports Foundation has a proven record of improving the lives of the children in the communities of Anse-à-Veau (south) and Carrefour (west) since its founding in 2006 as an incorporated 501(c)(3) in the USA and a registered nongovernmental organization (NGO) in Haiti. Our founding mission is : To prevent childhood delinquency and reduce socially dysfunctional behavior through sports and education. This has been accomplished by using sports to instill leadership, self-discipline and team-building skills through participation in structured martial arts programs (Karate) for the children of the communities.

The sports program is enhanced by classroom training and extra-curricular education in computer skills, mathematics and English instruction. In the past 5 years, a total of 125 children ages 8 to 16 have participated in our program, with no evidence of any child or adolescent becoming delinquent or a danger to society. This success led to the award of 2 acres of land donated to HSF by the Mayor of Anse-à-Veau, in order to expand its programs. HSF has used this gift of property to build a sports complex and community center, with classrooms, a computer lab, a gym and locker rooms (completed and currently in use, after repairs from damage by Hurricane Matthew). Additionally, aligned with its mission to improve the lives of the children,

HSF constructed a medical clinic which became operation on March 3rd 2019. The medical clinic will collaborate with medical professionals to provide services focused on the health and wellness of the children it serves.

On May 1st , 2019 HSF inaugurated a basketball court on the property, adjacent to the sports complex to encourage inter school competition. This is the first time kids in that environment will b exposed to Basketball.

HSF is determined to fulfill the immediate needs as well as provide long-term benefits for Haitian youth. By equipping the teachers with valuable skills, the project will not only benefit the youth but will have positive effects on the surrounding communities. It is important that our teachers are confident and competent to address the professional needs of the students. Therefore, every teacher will attend a two-week intensive training program before they begin their work. HSF is dedicated to hiring teachers from within the community and all teachers/monitors must commit to staying with the project for a minimum of two years.

NEXT:

HSF is committed to building the capacity of the Haitian youth who will one day be the future entrepreneurs of the country. By promoting vocational skills students will be better equipped to deal with adversity and use the knowledge they’ve gained in their future endeavors. HSF believes that by instilling a sense of hope to these students along with the tools necessary to succeed in their environment, the future of Haiti will be brighter.
