This past spring, the TIS 3rd-5th grade classes worked with African Sports Outreach (ASO) to send soccer equipment to at-risk youth and orphans in West Africa through the ASO Passback Program.
Thanks to the efforts of students, staff, parent volunteers, community sponsors and neighbors, the TIS community raised $1,303 to support the ASO Passback Program. Funds raised will enable the shipment of 6-1/2 oversized duffle bags stuffed with much-needed soccer equipment to ASO youth in West Africa. Each duffle bag will outfit up to 200 at-risk boys and girls on ASO soccer teams – that’s approximately 1,300 kids!
Thank you once again to the entire TIS community whose local efforts will spread hope and inspiration to youth in our global community. Visit vimeo.com/67245885 to view an ASO Passback Program in action. Visit www.asointernational.org and vimeo.com/37133503 to learn more about ASO.
