We helped Maki so that he can help others

Maki and I played on the same soccer team (Equipe Espoir-Team Hope) in 1984, Niger, West Africa.

Because of our soccer brotherhood we recently reconnected and with a team effort from 3 non-profits (Pencils For Kids, LIBO & Project Play Soccer) we were able to help him get his new moto taxi so he can start working again.

It’s easy as when one helps others, that other will help others as well, a domino effect. The secret to survival is to HELP each other.

Hawaii Pacific University Men’s Soccer and Project Play Soccer

From coach Christopher Fisher – Hawaii Pacific University Men’s Soccer team:

Our Hawaii Pacific University Men’s Soccer was invited by Mike Mitchell to stay at his Santa Cruz Mountain retreat. It was an excellent idea considering we have a team made up of individuals from 9 countries and 8 states. Soccer brought us together and now it was time to invest in each other, and get to know one another.

The invaluable experience united and inspired our team. Players collaborated in preparing meals, sang songs around the campfire, and shared personal journeys. Our different cultures aligned to where our values became congruent with the goals our team was trying to achieve. It is incredible to see strangers from across the globe become lifelong friends. This is encouraged and facilitated by Mike Mitchell and Project Play.
