I love WeGive.org - they make it so easy to make a difference. It's also nice to know that each of the organizations on here has been vetted and approved and that my donation is going straight to those in need.

Project Description

All Nations Soccer League (ANSL) was created to provide an affordable, healthy place for former refugees and immigrants to participate in a structured soccer league, an option that is currently unavailable for them in Jacksonville. To do so successfully, the All Nations Soccer League is raising funds to provide 8-10 former refugees with an opportunity to become certified soccer referees through the Florida Youth Soccer Association. After becoming Competitive Certified, ANSL referees will be eligible to referee at the competitive club level anywhere in Florida. This certification costs $100/referee.

As a part of the ANSLís job creation initiative, the league will hire and pay referees and provide them with weekly games to work each season. This program will give refugees a pathway to earn additional income for their family at twice the rate of minimum wage. The ANSL will prepare them to pass their certification and connect them with other refereeing opportunities to earn additional income and further broaden their skill set and opportunity.

Donations are essential to help support and offset the costs of ANSLís referee program. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to bring this soccer ministry league to our city.
