River of Hope is a non-profit organization that I founded in February 2010 in Buchs/Switzerland together with my husband Jake. This was the realization of a 20-year old dream inspired by the work of my father in law, Dr. Nathaniel Doron, a former UN Official and Diplomat. I picked up the thread following in his footsteps and named the organization “River of Hope” after the title of his biography. Our purpose is to assist needy and willing communities and other target groups to help themselves and others, and improve their standard of living for future generations. We would like to work with the International football community to support our work and we think the International Children’s Football Alliance is an ideal and ethical platform to this.

Football unites people worldwide. Football is team spirit and fair play. Football creates joy and enthusiasm. In short, FOOTBALL IS MORE. The charitable foundation FOOTBALL IS MORE uses the radiance and power of football to encourage and support disadvantaged people.
