Harvest8 Sports Group Inc, Also Known as Kingdom Soccer Project had the opportunity to provide two schools in Kenya with sports equipment, training, and curriculum.
Our Local Non Profit Organization partnered with One Child Matters, CrossRoads Fellowship Church, JC Sports Atascocita, Bownet Sports and several local Business and families in order to raise the needed funds to make this project a reality.
Kingdom Soccer Project has been working hard to make this endeavor a reality. In June they were able to send two Coaches to villages in Kajiado, Kenya to donate the soccer equipment and train the staff of 12 teachers.
Jennifer and Cesar Coronel, Directors for Kingdom Soccer Project shared with us that "we love to challenge our community and see what we are able to accomplish when we partnered together. Last Year, we were able to bless a school in the mountains of Haiti and as a result the school was able to create a full time PE position for a teacher."
This Year, our goal was to do the same for two schools in Kenya and we were beyond blessed to be able to do so.
One of the challenges we faced was fundraising, the total cost for equipment and the trip was well over $12,000. We did not know if we were going to be able to fundraise such a large amount.
The amazing thing was to see a lot of our local families and businesses donating to our cause. One week, before our trip we had achieved our goal.
Harvest8 Sports Group Inc and JC Sports are well known in our community for their philanthropic work. Last year they donated over $10,000 in Sports Equipment to Humble ISD Title One schools in partnership with the Houston Dynamo and the BBVA Compass.
We are proud of our giving and our community support- Jennifer and Cesar Coronel-shared with us- We truly believe that we are called to help our community and our brothers and sisters in need and it is an honor to serve them.
Please Help us to Reach our Goal!!! We need to fund raise an additional $5000 to reach our Goal
We are reaching out on behalf of our non-profit in Houston called Harvest8 Sports group Inc , also known as the Kingdom Soccer Project.
Harvest8 Sports group is a 501(c)3 Non Profit organization created by Jennifer and Cesar Coronel to empower local and international youth communities through sports activities. Our objective is not only to provide sports equipment, but to make sure that sports instruction and development takes place through training and curriculum after our departure.
As many know, last year we travelled to the villages of Haiti in Roppisa by partnering with Acts 29 Missions and brought 100 soccer balls, soccer goals, netting, soccer equipment and most importantly soccer curriculum for the teachers. We were not only able to deliver soccer equipment but most importantly the school has since created a full time paid position for a PE teacher (talk about impact!!)
On June 20, 2017 we will heading to Kenya, Africa to serve and train two schools in the area. Kingdom Soccer Project will be providing the following to these schools:
100 Soccer Balls
and the Mighty Kicks Soccer Curriculum translated into Swahili (the local language)
We need to fundraise a total of $13000 to be used the following way:
$7000 travelling expenses for two coaches
$1000 Translation of materials to Swahili
$1200 Soccer Balls
$ 800 Soccer medals
$1400 10 Bownets goals
$1600 Soccer Equipment
Our deadline to raise the funds is June 1st 2017 and we will depart from Houston, TX on June 20th 2017. We will keep you posted about the trip and share a lot of pictures and videos with all of you.
We would be blessed with any contribution amount. Anything Helps!!!!

Kingdom Soccer Project Friends and Families, we wanted to take a moment and Thank you for your partnership and support.
We have blessed a remote village in the country of Haiti and those children will never be the same.
A total of 200 children were introduced to PE games, structured play and their first ever Soccer Tournament.
Take a moment to check the pictures and observe the smiles of the children as they run, kick and play. These images are priceless and do not tell the truth about how we were blessed in the remote village of Roppissa in Haiti. The love and smiles those children shared with us every day cannot be explained.
They Changes us forever. Jennifer and myself will never be the same.
