Soccer is the only sport that youth in slums can participate in freely. Our outreaches have impacted many disadvantaged youths with talent in Sports within the slums around Kampala, Uganda. The program reaches and searches for talented children under 12, 14 and 16 years respectively. Through football, we have managed to organize sports Galas aiming at scouting young talent. We conduct football camps and select the most talented youth to nurture them. We are focused on maintaining mainstream youth as well as youth with talent in football/soccer and other sports including basketball, netball, and volleyball.
The main goal of the Academy is to change the mindset of young people within the slum areas through football. We work with coaches to support community football clubs through training, workshops and logistical contributions. Our aim is to nurture and expose talented football youth to perform nationally and internationally. Our operational areas include the major slums in Makindye, Nakawa, Kawempe, Rubaga, and Central regions of Kampala, Uganda.
