The Communities for Life Network: TeamUp
Communities for Life partners with other non-profit organizations to help develop the long-term sustainability of Manchay, Peru. One of the organizations we partner with is TeamUp. TeamUp’s goal is to foster life-changing opportunities through sports. Their focus is to partner and come alongside local organizations to assist sustainable impact and long-term community development strategies.
We work with TeamUp to develop a strategy to use sports programs to positively impact the lives of those in Manchay, beginning with sports programs focused on soccer to create spaces for belonging and provide life-changing opportunities. TeamUp regularly sends elite sports teams and athletes to Manchay to assist in coaching, interact with kids and help run tournaments to enhance the current programs. The program initially started with 15 children, but today, we run two sports programs with more than 100 young athletes!
