What if sports could help end extreme poverty?

On the football field, the goal of the defense is to tackle the opponent. As champions of the vulnerable, we tackle issues that prevent human flourishing…including all forms of poverty. FH has teamed up with professional football players to raise awareness and support programs that are changing the lives of people living in poverty.
