Soccer League

YKM originally started out as a sports camp ministry for the youth. Although we are no longer doing sport camps, we still have a heart and passion for youth and sports. Our Haitian Soccer League serves boys aged 9-16 in each of the villages that YKM currently serves. Our main goal with this league is to help guide and transform the boys who come into our program into Godly young men. There are three different aspects to this ministry. The first aspect is a bible study/devotion at the end of each practice. The second aspect is one on one discipleship between our coaches and players. The third aspect is once a month each team does a community development project in their village. In order to be a part of the soccer team, each player is required to attend school, pass their classes and attend the bible study at the end of each practice. Because of these teams, we have seen an increase in school attendance, a decrease in the number of issues/trouble with the youth and multiple salvations.

Most of the pastors in Haiti are bi-vocational and have very little, if any, theological/ministry training. Pastors in Haiti are seen as the main leader in the villages and as a result, the majority of community decisions get passed through the pastor. Pastors in Haiti wear many different hats and have many different responsibilities, therefore YKM comes alongside each of the pastors we serve with to offer theological teachings and ministry training. Our trainings and teachings consist of biblical truth and a realistic and applicable approach to maintain and grow ministry in Haiti. We also host various topical teaching events for church members in the churches we serve with. Lastly, YKM serves alongside pastors to offer emotional, mental and financial support to both the pastor and church in times of need and struggle.

The cost of purchasing livestock in Haiti is unrealistic for most of the families that we work with and the pleasure of eating chicken, beef or goat at meals is oftentimes unattainable due to the high market prices. We started the livestock exchange program in the villages we serve in order to give people an opportunity to have livestock of their own. Owning livestock in Haiti gives people the opportunity to trade, eat or sell their livestock. Once you have one animal you can then start to expand your number of livestock. We start with a training for all of the people that will be involved in the program. We then give each person in the program one female animal and then they breed that animal with the male YKM animal we have in each village. In exchange for the original animal, YKM receives an animal from two of the first four births of that original animal.

Economically disadvantaged people

If you were to ask a Haitian pastor their greatest need in their village they would say that having a quality school is their greatest need. Haitians value education and understand the importance of having a good quality education. However, because funding is an issue for the majority of the villages in Haiti, good-quality schools are only an idea and dream. YKM currently has three schools grades PK-6th, in the villages that we serve. We cover all expenses associated with the schools, provide leadership and organization for the schools, and work with the local and national government in order to ensure that our schools are meeting and exceeding the expectations set forth by the government. The children in the YKM schools are currently the most at-risk and most in need children in the villages we serve.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
