Passion Project

The #1 reason why at-risk kids play sports in Latin America is to escape their situation at home, but where do they escape to?

In the realm of sports, they escape to a realm of freedom, where their God-given talents, passions, and ambitions can flourish. It is a space where they can immerse themselves in the game, leaving behind the weight of their home life and embracing a sense of purpose and belonging. They escape to a place where their potential is not hindered by the challenges they face but rather propelled by their determination and love for the sport. It becomes a sanctuary where their abilities and efforts are recognized and valued, fostering a sense of empowerment and confidence. 

Through sports, Victory Ahead aims to help children find solace and escape to a realm of dreams, aspirations, and the possibility of a brighter future.

Hello, my name is Santiago Farrera, and I am asking for your help to reach my goal to give access for 1,000 at-risk kids in Colombia and Venezuela to play and compete in the game they love. This is my Passion Project.

As a kid growing up in Caracas, my parents gave me every opportunity to belong to one of the most exclusive soccer clubs in Venezuela. I had everything I needed to play and compete freely without worry or burden. I was too young to appreciate it then but when I recently visited Cartagena, Colombia, I became heartbroken that many kids didn’t have the opportunities I had when I was young, so I decided to make a difference.
