We envision a future in which every child in rural Haiti can realize their potential and follow their dreams.
GOALS advances youth leadership through soccer and education to create stronger, healthier communities in rural Haiti.
GOALS operates according to values designed to empower communities and achieve long-lasting development through sport.
