supporting refugee youth through sports, arts, and character education
Established in 2014, Safari Youth Club is an after school and summer program for boys and girls 18 years and younger. We provide refugee youth with leadership in soccer and other sports, as well as opportunities to develop their talent in art and music. We also give educational and moral support to keep our kids doing well in school.
We are located in the YWCA's downtown facility which includes an indoor basketball/soccer court and meeting rooms. We also contract with the city for the use of outdoor fields.
Did you know that since the early 1980s, over 7500 refugees from more than 30 countries have made the Granite State their home? It's not easy being a refugee. I know because I came to America as a refugee myself. This is why I, together with a few friends, founded Safari Youth Club. We saw how much the refugee children were struggling to assimilate and do well in school.
Safari Youth Club is an awesome organization run by the refugee community to provide support for refugee youth in Manchester, NH. At this after school and weekend program, kids can find help with homework, meet friends, and of course play soccer! We are currently trying to raise $5,000 to help buy a van for Safari Youth club, which is desperately needed so the children and youth can get to the program. Their parents are working second and third shift or don't have transportation. Safari Youth Club provides the kind of mentoring and support that can help these children succeed in their new home of America. Please make a small or large donation to help us reach our goal! We are so grateful for your support for these kids. Share on Facebook, and with your friends. Thank you!!!
