Hi this is Jen Wisemore,
We need your help to finish our children's soccer field.
As seen above in the photo the soccer field is well on it's way. The grass has been planted by hand. Let's see this for the children of Gulu.
The impact of this project goes beyond success in soccer. Studies have shown that kids who participate in sports perform better academically, socially, and emotionally. I am excited for this field to provide a safe place for the children to learn these life skills that will prepare them for a brighter future.
Building the children's soccer field is part of phase 1 of Gulu Community Park. Soccer is the #1 sport in Uganda. Children dream of the day they can play on a team and score the winning goal. We want to help these children set goals beyond the game and live a live full of achievements.
This kids soccer field will be 55 meters by 45 meters and will accommodate one to four play areas depending on the age of the children. It will be fenced with a drainage system put in place. There will also be seating for 300 excited fans. The soccer field will also be used for the disabled children and adults that play blind soccer.
World Embrace told me of the generosity of Rose Heights Church, in Tyler Texas, that advanced vision by funding the field land prep, Black soil, and grass being planted. Also, I would like to thank World Embrace for allowing me to assist them in serving the kids and community in this impoverished part of the world.
Also, I would like to thank you for helping us make this dream become a reality! All donations are tax-deductible.
