When ISL Foundation had the opportunity to work alongside Sil Ganzó (Founder and Executive Director) and ourBRIDGE for KIDS (Charlotte, NC) we jumped at the chance.
ourBRIDGE for KIDS is a not-for-profit organization that supports refugee and immigrant communities in Charlotte by offering a one-of-a-kind enrichment program for newly arrived and 1st generation American children. They advocate for the success, happiness and fair treatment of all immigrant families as they acculturate to the United States.
As a family ourselves, ISL is made up of a team of people with ties to different parts of the world, including Brazil, Mexico, Spain, South Africa, United Kingdom, etc… so being able to partner up with ourBRIDGE has always been a privilege for us to be a part of.
Recently we had the opportunity, in conjunction with our partnership with Xavi Hernandez (FC Barcelona) and toc ball to spend an afternoon with the kids, as part of a better health initiative for juveniles that involves getting them off the couch and away from any electronic devices, to be more active outdoors.
We were beyond grateful to Xavi and toc ball for their generous contribution of 50 trainers for each of the kids to go home with and begin learning new skills, which will be both beneficial to their health and when getting out on the field to play.
