Because of the sport’s popularity and prevalence in Haiti, football (soccer) is an important cultural institution in the country. Not only is the Léogâne Football Club highly competitive in Haiti’s professional football league, the team also invests a great deal of time and energy in its youth clubs and programs. Kwasans F.C. is proud to partner with and support the Léogâne Football Club by facilitating the shipment of shoes and other equipment for their youth programs.
For some in Haiti, football provides opportunity – a pathway out of poverty through collegiate scholarships, possibly even a career as a professional player or coach, whether in Haiti or elsewhere. For others its value is in providing a way to become more fit, make friends, have fun, and learn life lessons from a dedicated coaching staff that cares about their well-being and their future.
Either way, the programs developed by friend of Kwasans Jean Mark Brissau, VP of Léogâne F.C., are deserving of all the support they can get.
