Haiti

Geographically, it's hard to believe the western hemisphere is home to one of the poorest nations in the world. Less than 2,000 miles from the U.S. rests Haiti, a country with a tragic history of poverty and corruption.

Inter-United has traveled to Haiti for many years with a mission to love and serve. The teams traveling there are hosted at the Happy House by Ed Lockett Jr., a Georgia native who has lived in Haiti for over 20 years. Apart from playing soccer and putting on clinics with the locals in Haiti, Inter-United travels to schools, hospitals, churches, and local neighborhoods to pass out supplies, food, and spread love to the Haitian people. Ed has opened, and currently funds, five schools where each student is guaranteed at least one meal per day. Ed and Inter-United are currently looking for property to expand the capacity of the Happy House. Our goal is to create a community home and training center for the Haitians and volunteers alike.

Jim and Kim Reynolds lead our teams to Haiti. Their hearts are fully for the people there. Currently, they are organizing a 3v3 tournament to host in Haiti for its soccer players. Their goal is to host an annual tournament there to scout, sponsor, and train the best soccer players. Haiti has loads of talented soccer players to offer.
