Just for Kicks

The Need

Cultural disparities such as linguistic & scholastic insecurities exist within the refugee community & parents lack the funds to afford tutors for students.

Refugee children need to have friends and see that the community cares for them. They need love and acceptance and a diverse, safe, and welcoming community for them to thrive.

The Refugee children need better education. They do not have a comfortable environment to learn in.

Refugee children need to be active. Because they do not have many opportunities, they also need to learn social skills - how to interact with others.


The Solution

Hosted several youth soccer programs for over 40 kids.

Provided educational mentorship and provided them with tools to overcome linguistic isolation through a partnership with the AMFA by setting up one hour of weekly, in-home tutoring in the subjects of English and Mathematics.

 

The Outcomes

The refugee children and volunteer staff enjoyed meeting each other, socializing, and learning new skills.
