“This picture means so much to my *heart* to see our FIRST student athlete arrived from Sierra Leone to Boston,USA to attend High Mowing School and be part of their soccer program with #BlackRockFc

I personally can’t express how happy I’m right at this moment to see Juan taking steps towards her dream.

Please visit Heart-Shaped-Hands Foundation and just us on this journey #HeartShapedHands

 

After a childhood accident, Juan left arm was amputated, but that hasn’t held her back. She is currently competing in 2020-21 Paralympic Games in Tokyo!

Juan is a 15-year-old girl from humble beginnings in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where she lives with her mother, father and two older siblings. Her father does agriculture and her mother is unemployed. Juan loves sports — her favorites are soccer and track, and she excels in the classroom.

Through some connections and friends of ours, Juan was offered a scholarship to the prestigious High Mowing School in Wilton, New Hampshire. This well-known Waldorf boarding school has awarded Juan a full academic scholarship and a spot on their soccer team. Her dreams of a becoming a lawyer are well on the way to coming true! Her family never could have afforded this life-changing opportunity, without our help.

But here’s the catch, there are additional costs that her scholarship won’t cover — and her family cannot afford — like flights to/from Sierra Leone, health insurance, a phone, school supplies, clothes, and toiletries.

That’s where you come in — can you help us give Juan this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Juan is an inspiration — and she needs our helping hands.

To cover this school year’s additional expenses, we need to raise $10,200 for her. Help us ensure Juan is set for success by making a tax-deductible donation to the HeartShapedHands Foundation today.

CLICK HERE TO DONATE!

On behalf of Juan — and all the future young athletes she will inspire — please accept our heartfelt thanks in advance.
