About

BIBVA offers  regular beach volleyball training sessions to the youth of Roatan – with the aim to expand all over the Honduran Bay Islands. It is a free-of-charge program especially for kids and adolescents of low-income families. By integrating the young people into regular and healthy recreational activities we offer an alternative to give more people in the world opportunities of a healthy lifestyle. While this is a trivial quest in a developed country, without governmental support or social infrastructure, it can be incredibly difficult. Sports offers aim to help communities addressing the youth on the Bay Islands/Honduras . That is because they never saw any opportunities in life.  A program like BIBVA offers opportunities –  together we can change that.
