THROUGH SOCCER, WE DREAM.
Since founding in 2015, Youth Spotlight has raised USD 23,000 and formed soccer teams for 450 left-behind children across twenty-one schools in Anhui, China. Youth Spotlight is an incorporated 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and has six chapters in different high schools around the globe.
There are sixty-one million left-behind children in China who are deprived of the rights to live with their migrant parents due to poor government policies. Lonely, bored, and even depressed, left-behind children are often alienated and find it difficult to bond with their classmates. But soccer changes all of this. Through world’s most popular sport, we bring fulfillment and meaning to these underprivileged youths, teaching them the power of friendship, victory, and responsibility through the vehicle of soccer.
