The students in the program share a passionate desire for sports. Beauchamp Charity has sponsored a surfing tournament in La Boquita for 3 years in a row.
Surfing in La Boquita, Casares, and Pochomil has become a popular sport among kids and young adults in these impoverished communities. We plan to continue sponsoring more surfing tournaments and other sports as well.
Sports play an important role in children’s development, teaching them important social skills around sportsmanship, self-esteem and team work while providing them with a healthy alternative to just hanging out on the streets after school. This provides them with a positive alternative to drugs, alcohol, gangs and violence.
