About Kids In Cleats:

Our overall mission is to use soccer as the vehicle for children to rise out of poverty through education, self-empowerment and sport in Cameroon, Africa. Through sport the goal is to engage young people and their families and help with education, food security and relationships with job training programs. This will provide the individual and community with the ability to break the cycle of poverty and improve the standard of living. A special effort will be made to have a specific girls’ program. This specialized program will focus on empowering these young girls and providing them with the tools to succeed within their social and familial environments.

Our long-term goal is to have proper soccer fields, a multi-purpose community center, a working farm, and a solid coaching staff that will not only be great trainers but also mentors for our kids. Each kid will be expected to meet educational goals and will hopefully be able to enter into secondary school and/or specific training programs. Further, it will be mandatory that our kids attend monthly or bi-monthly learning sessions that will focus on HIV/AIDS awareness, type 1 diabetes, safe sex practices, and various other health care issues.
