What is “Raising EAGLES”?
SEE THE NEED
Opportunities to develop athletic skills and play any other sport beside baseball are nearly non-existent in rural areas of the Dominican Republic. Scratch stickball games and little league opportunities abound, but not so with the latest trending sports of basketball and volleyball. There are thousands of youth who want to participate and compete in these sports who have no opportunity at all because of the lack of facilities and coaches.
CATCH THE VISION
Our vision is to finish construction of our first basketball/volleyball court, provide the necessary security against vandalism, and resource team equipment and uniforms in order to have a viable sports program on our high school campus. We are off to a good start, but we need funding to complete the vision.
The name of our future basketball and volleyball teams? THE EAGLES (LAS AGUILAS)! Help us raise the Eagles in the Dominican Republic!
Three Compelling Reasons for Your Support:
The most compelling reason for your support is that it will help provide an opportunity for youth to develop skills, talent, and knowledge of other sports beside baseball. A well-rounded education requires multiple opportunities to learn and grow.
The efforts and money we invest in a quality sports program encourages exercise and an active healthy lifestyle. All over the world, youth are succumbing to a sedentary lifestyle that endangers their physical well-being. Sports are key to bucking this trend.
DEVELOPS WINNING ATTITUDEs
Youth learn self-esteem and self-confidence only through experience. Being on a winning team develops a can-do attitude that carries on into all of life. We want our teams to taste the good fruit that come through teamwork and hard work.
