SUPPORT Let’s Play Fair PROGRAM

  • FIELD OF OPPORTUNITY 

KPI has bought land for our Field Of Opportunity to provide a safe and more centrally located space for the children in our program and community to play and learn. Now we are in need of support to build the dedicated multi-sport field and court

The creation and maintenance of a multi-sport field and sports court is a top priority for KPI because the current field is:

  • Not centrally located making it difficult for some of the kids to get home safely before dark.
  • Hazardous with uneven terrain, tall grass hiding dangerous holes and standing water, attracting mosquitos that can carry malaria.
  • Shared with the community, not allowing for reliable program scheduling.

A dedicated, centrally located, level field and court will allow KPI to:

  • Run more consistent and productive programs.
  • Build a “safe space” for participants to play.
  • Include more sports within our program.
  • Create opportunities for greater community involvement.
  • Host the first local sport tournaments with surrounding villages extending KPI’s impact to    upwards of 10,000+ children and their families.

Estimated Investment Needed: $50,000  (Naming rights and sponsorship levels available)

Testimonial: “Going to Rwanda was a life changing event – the county is beautiful, the children are amazing and the experience is something that every person should try to do in their lifetime.  I thought I was going to teach the kids something, but what happened was that they taught me more than I could have expected – resilience and forgiveness.” - Sheril Feldman 2013 Volunteer
