Look What You Helped Us Accomplish!
During 2022-2023, 35 children were awarded scholarships to train five times per week for 11 months! CEPER has expanded its coaching staff to accommodate a total of more than 65 kids of all ages. The program has also provided uniforms (short, shirt and socks) that are used in training and competitions.
Becas Pa’lante provides financial support so that young children can receive soccer and physical training through CEPER in Ciudad Bolivar, Colombia.
The program is open to children ages 5-16. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, commitment to practicing sports and perceived vulnerability to drugs, violence and other dangers of the streets. We envision Becas Pa’lante will continue to expand to serve an additional 25 children by 2024.
We believe access to formal training will help these wonderful kids develop discipline, teamwork capabilities and a sense of purpose.
Thank you for you help in making this a reality. Special thank you to Enfragen and Susquehanna for their corporate sponsorship.
Thank you for your donations of new and gently used soccer items. We were able to deliver those items in August of 2022!

The Pa'lante kids are very active and (fortunately) their shoes go through rapid wear and tear!
Through friends and family, we raised enough money to buy 45 pairs of soccer shoes.
