Molly and Soccer without Borders

For the past couple years Molly has gone down to Nicaragua to teach girls how to play soccer and help organize leagues with the Soccer without Borders program.  I know many of you have gotten to know Molly over there years here in Jackson Hole with here guiding many whitewater and scenic trips down the Snake River, so I thought I would post her latest update about the program:

“Just wanted to send a quick update and let you know that I’m heading back down the Nicaragua this March for our second annual camp in Granada, Nicaragua with Soccer without Borders.  I know a lot of you followed my trip last winter and I just wanted to write with a few exciting updates.  Three current Dartmouth Soccer girls that Mary coaches are spending there off term in Granada interning with us.  They are making a lot of progress in getting weekly practices up and running again, going to schools to recruit new girls and getting the new SWB office up and running!  They have been posting on the same blog that followed our trip last winter which is http://swbnicaragua.blogspot.com/

 

We just applied for a Nike Changemakers Grant which is also really exciting news, feel free to check that out, the entry is listed as Trabajando en Equipo Aprendemos Mas (TEAM) Granada, Nicaragua.  The site is at http://sportforchange.changemakers.net/.  We should be finding out soon if we win one of the $5000 prizes, which would be the first grant this project has recieved.

 

 

Last but not least if you are interested in donating or just want a great update on everything that going on down there check out or first giving site!

 

 

 

Thank you so much, hope all is well,
