FONDAPS is a non-profit organization based in Haiti whose mission is to educate a large number of children from various neighborhoods of the capital, through sports. In addition, the foundation aims to enable these young people to get to know each other, share their lives and learn through their training.
The Foundation insists on sporting principles such as fair play, teamwork, respect of their coaches and of their opponents. We are sure that these principles transcend into values in the young people's everyday lives. We believe that imparting values such as good citizenship, respect for others and a genuine love for each other will encourage them to become responsible citizens in the future.
This is why FONDAPS tries to ensure the schooling of a large majority of its participants. Acting as a coordinator; the foundation tries to partner with other organizations in the area to facilitate education. The organization also helps to pay school fees for children whose parents cannot.
The foundation is aware of all the health and malnutrition problems which young people face in Haiti. In response to this we offer support with a food program that includes both the participant and their families. After each training session children can take home a bag of food for their families. This should last a family of 10 for around 2 days.
