Mike Mitchell considered himself a grassroots philanthropist after serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Niger, West Africa over 30 years ago. Unfortunately, his enthusiasm, service and inspiration alone were not enough to make his dream a reality. But, with the help of generous friends and supporters who believed in his vision, Project Play Soccer later become a reality.
Project Play Soccer, which Mike founded, is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children through the sport of soccer which started out delivering and implementing organized soccer programs to impoverished nations of Niger and Benin.
