2011 Camp in Haiti - A New Page

The Haitian Sports Foundation (HSF) in collaboration with Haiti Aujourd’hui et Demain (HADEM), their executive board, 16 volunteers which included two medical doctors, two nurses, four teachers, an accountant sponsored their first annual Sport Camp. What an experience! The camp was a total success in spite of a limited budget. The children left with great joy and they learn a great deal about public speaking, English, The Environment, Civic duties, sports etc.

The kids that participated in the camp came from all corner of Haiti including Regnier, Limonade, Leogane, Carrefour, Cap and Milot.

According to Master Ostin, from the Tae Kwon Do program states: “It was quiet an honorable experience to work with the Taekwondo practitioners in Haiti. I want to express special thanks to Master Leo Cartright for giving me the opportunity to be the first World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) International Referee for Haiti. Mr. Cartright shows that he is ready to work with Haitians living abroad and to represent their country in the art of Taekwondo. He developed a strategic partner with the Haitian Sport Foundations (HSF) which sponsors the success of the seminar. I had a wonderful time working with the students at the seminar and I am looking forward to more exchange in the future. I am proud to be a member of HSF because it creates an environment where both instructors and students can come together and learn from each other. “Computer donation was made to the registered programs and some other schools and social institutions."

Approaching its Fifth Anniversary

In July, HSF will celebrate its fifth year anniversary. As a result, HSF is in the process of establishing a permanent location to hold their sports camp and build a community center. The center, which will become HSF’s headquarter in Haiti, will to serve Haitian youth from all regions. This center will be the first of its kind in Haiti. Major initiatives are being developed to train Haitian coaches, to enhance their skills and knowledge through additional courses at one of the top university in the United States. A specific curriculum is being developed to serve solely Haitian athletes.

Although we have been in this business for five years, we are still in need of contributions. The contributions will be used towards additional camp for the children, community center, sports equipment, physical education, computers and music. If you are interested in a trip to Haiti, your time is also needed. We are currently seeking volunteer for our next mission trip.
