AASA was able to sponsor two youth in the Haitian Initiative program. Our sponsorship pays for annual tuitions which enables these two young people to participate in soccer training six days each week, and it provides them with a nutritious meal following each training session, typically the only meal they receive each day.
Consider the impact of a $300 annual tuition on a family whose average, annual income is approximately $400. You can quickly see the importance of the sponsorships we offer to Thanlot Dimanche and Marie Kettelie Destine.
Thanlot Dimanche is 17-years old and plays with the senior boys Academy team. Thanlot has one brother and three sisters. Math is his favorite subject in school and he hopes to be a professional fútbol player.
Marie Kettelie Destine will celebrate her 17th birthday on February 24th. Marie has four brothers and five sisters. She studies English in school and it is her favorite subject.
Thanlot and Marie both attend The Institution Mixte Foyer Divin, one of the largest schools in Port-au-Prince. The name of the school – Foyer Divin in Creole – translates to ‘Divine Home.’ Many of its students have become doctors, lawyers, theologians, engineers and computer technicians. Each was an original member of the Haitian Initiative soccer program when they enrolled in 2013.
Our sponsorship supports the conviction that we lead impoverished people out of poverty through education. Thanlot and Marie are pleased and grateful that we continue to give them the opportunity to attend school when so many others in their country cannot.
