Soccer was an escape for Jordan Peloubet who grew up in the Arusha District of Tanzania.
In 2004, Drew and Susan Peloubet visited Tanzania for a mission trip. They immediately connected with Jordan and decided to sponsor Jordan’s education. In 2016, they adopted him and brought him to Tampa.
Now Jordan, a sophomore at Tampa Prep, is giving back by bringing the same joy he got from soccer to other Tanzanian kids. He’s raising money to build a soccer facility in his home village through love.futbol, a nonprofit that raises money to build soccer fields in places of need.
