PPLA-MODI-NEW-ESPA In October 2011, Our team moved to Haiti to organize a day of tolerance and peace: A Goal for Les Cayes. The meeting took place in Les Cayes, a community southwest of Haiti, where in partnership with local organizations as the Haiti Youth Development and Education (HYDE) and Hope for Haiti, we not only donated soccer uniforms, balls and sports equipment to 10 rural schools in the neighboring town of Cavaillon but helped to coordinate a soccer annual interscholastic championship – the Championat.  Additionally, the team of President Michel Martelly and the team of United Nations Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) clashed in a friendly soccer match to celebrate the value of peace, promote teamwork and discipline in the community.

From February to May 2012 youth from schools that rely on A Goal for Les Cayes participated in the interscholastic Championat and Project Peace Latin America moved up Berette, Cavaillon (Haiti) to watch the final game. PPLA consolidated alliances with local partners, who continue to benefit these Haitian youth.

minustah

The United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) was established on 1 June 2004 by Security Council resolution 1542 and succeeded a Multinational Interim Force (MIF) authorized after President Bertrand Aristide departed Haiti for exile. MINUSTAH’s original mandate was to restore a secure and stable environment, to promote the political process, to strengthen Haiti’s Government institutions and rule-of-law-structures, as well as to promote and to protect human rights. The devastating earthquake of 12 January 2010, delivered a severe blow to country’s already shaky economy and infrastructure. The Security Council endorsed the Secretary-General’s recommendation to increase the overall force levels of MINUSTAH to support the immediate recovery, reconstruction and stability efforts in the country.
