Giving back through soccer

Jordan Peloubet

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.
