In January 2014 we launched our first Move Forward dance and basketball program ever in Kenscoff, a commune on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince in Haiti. Move Forward partnered with the Haitian organization AJVPH and were supported by the staff of Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO). The kick-off program ran for 10 days and 88 teenagers were recruited from 3 public schools by AJVPH.
Move Forward’s first program in Haiti was a success. The training environment fostered the values of teamwork, discipline and talent development. This and the overall focus on community building, empowerment, learning and fun led to all participants being provided with a variety of experiences we will never forget.
