One of the great things about GOALS Haiti is that we give our former students the opportunity to play an active role in the organization, if possible. Wynn Walent (@ wwalent _ coloradohaitiproject.org) is the founder and executive director of the Haiti Sports Foundation, a Colorado-based nonprofit that has been supporting local solutions in Haiti for 30 years.

The Haitian Olympic Committee has stressed that relief and reconstruction will be a huge undertaking that will require time and sustained support. This group is confident that the combination of sport, youth and education will have the greatest impact on the people of Haiti.

The USOC is focused on helping orphaned children, many of whom live in makeshift tent cities and have little access to any sports. We are trying to support the Haitian Olympic Committee so that they can implement social programs to help these children. Haiti's Olympic Committee has pledged to provide sports programs for children living in the tent city.

In Haiti, where there are so many immediate needs after the devastating earthquake and aftershocks, I do not believe that sport is not so vital right now. The response to our services has been overwhelmingly positive and is helping to slowly improve life after the earthquake in Haiti.

There are different sports in Haiti, but everyone in the country agrees that football is the most popular sport. In fact, football is the most "popular" on the island, and most Haitians play it at least once a week, if not more than once or twice a month. Some Haitians have a soft spot for baseball, but most of them play football, especially in the summer and even winter months.

Haiti has literally hundreds of small football clubs competing at local level, and football is undoubtedly the most popular sport internationally. Haiti is one of many countries that consider football as their national sport, known there as "national sport." Haiti's national soccer team is the second Caribbean team to make it to the World Cup in 1974. As a member of CONCACAF since 1961, the FHF is responsible for football in Haiti, albeit in the lower category, but it is responsible for monitoring the national team and the development of the sport as a whole.

Football is one of the most popular sports in Haiti and an important source of income for many people, but it is mostly for the purpose.

Haiti had no chance to qualify for the World Cup after losing 1-4 in their opening game against Mexico, but won its last game against Mexico and finished with the most points. Haiti qualified for its first World Cup, with players such as Lionel Messi, Emmanuel Adebayor and Neymar making history. President Bill Clinton said that if it didn't work out, he and his farmers could be disadvantaged.
