A large majority of young people in the Twin Cities area come from communities of colour and populations who speak numerous, or secondary, languages. Due to an achievement gap many of these young people are often faced with barriers denying them opportunities. In both the Twin Cities and Haiti, young people of colour lack access to high quality activities outside of school time, which are a crucial part of positive youth development and childhood growth and wellness.


The Sanneh Foundation focuses its efforts on the urban and immigrant youth in the Twin Cities area and aims to provide programmes for at-risk children using soccer as a tool to unite communities, improve lives and empower children.


The organisation offers weekly community programming, warm meals, free community camps and academic intervention.
