Esperanza Casa Para Los Niños
By sponsoring a hole in the Hope4Youth Golf Tournament you can insure that not only will these orphans receive the necessary education to become contributing members of their communities but also rescue them from a life of servitude in the sex trade (most young girls) and the drug trade (for most young men). For these less fortunate orphans, life gives very few choices and the funding of an education for those children enables them to break the cycle of poverty and suffering. The no frill tournament model is unique since the underwriting of the tournament is borne by you the sponsors, 100% of all contributions, fees and auction proceeds will go directly into the educational scholarship to pay their tuition and assist in the purchase of the necessary text books and supplies.
