St. George’s parishioners working with children in Haiti.
You can help.

Elena Anastas-Evans and her husband John Evans live in the Berkshires and are long time members of the St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Pittsfield, MA.  Elena has served on the church council and sang in the choir, while her husband helped teach Sunday school.  All three of their sons were altar boys and as a family participate in the church community activities.  Both Elena and John are psychologists working in local school systems in the Berkshires.  Together with friends, they started the nonprofit Konbit Football Ayiti (KFA) in 2007 to improve the lives of Haitian children.

Konbit Football Ayiti is a 501(c)3 US non-profit corporation.  Its mission is, “by linking soccer and education, to make a difference in the trajectory of the lives of Haitian children who may never break the bonds of poverty”.

The staff works with teachers in several free community schools to help develop teaching methodologies and art and music programs.  In parallel they enroll students on soccer teams providing coaches training and team development as well as food and water.

In order to fully equip each team, they solicit used and new soccer equipment: balls, cleats, shorts, shirts, shin guards, and socks as well as musical instruments, school supplies such as used and or new laptops, educational toys and art supplies.

Your support and efforts are greatly appreciated.     You can support by:

  • Donating money
  • School supplies, musical equipment and, or
  • New / used soccer equipment and supplies
