Julio Galindo, Jr. Community Courts
The SOL International Foundation Community Courts are located on the island of Roatan, Honduras and serve as the venue for many our programs. Thanks to the generous spirit and enduring vision of Julio Galindo, Jr. (“Julito”), we have a home base to provide a safe environment for the children in our community.
With a prime location in the Sandy Bay community, we have been able to attract and serve the many underprivileged families living within walking distance of our facilities. Here, children and young adults are afforded a safe and positive environment to become involved in extracurricular sports and educational programs that would otherwise be unavailable to them on a daily basis.
We currently have over 60 members from the community regularly involved in the center and we hope to build upon our current infrastructure which includes stadium lighting (so that we can offer programs in the evenings) basketball goals, batting cages, swings and much more. Each night children gather to play soccer, basketball, kickball and volleyball, to color, jump rope, read books, or just hang out.
We are looking to expand by adding an indoor Community Center with classrooms, a computer lab and a library which will enable us to further address the many needs of the community we serve.
