About us

Poverty, a persistent global challenge, disproportionately affects underserved communities, particularly in Africa. In Nigeria, poverty is deeply entrenched, with over 40% of the population living below the national poverty line. This widespread deprivation has far-reaching consequences, impacting individuals’ access to basic necessities, education, and opportunities for advancement.

The cycle of poverty is often perpetuated by a lack of access to quality education, one of the most powerful tools for breaking free from socioeconomic disparities. Education empowers individuals to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to secure employment, generate income, and contribute to their communities’ development.

Football, a unifying force that transcends social barriers, holds immense potential to foster empowerment and social change. By nurturing football talent and providing opportunities for participation, we can instill in young people the values of teamwork, discipline, and perseverance, preparing them for success both on and off the field.

A Holistic Strategy for Sustainable Impact

We support educational initiatives that provide children and youths with quality education, equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in their academic pursuits and future careers.

General Empowerment

We implement programs that foster social and economic empowerment, providing individuals with vocational training, entrepreneurial support, and access to financial resources.

Aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals SDGs

Our mission is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 5 (Gender Equality), and SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth). By empowering underserved communities through education, football development, and general empowerment, we strive to create a more equitable and prosperous future for all.

Our Goal: Reaching 1 Million Nigerians by 2030

We are committed to reaching 1 million Nigerians with skills, knowledge, tools, and resources by 2030. This ambitious goal reflects our unwavering belief in the power of education, empowerment, and football development to transform lives and break the cycle of poverty.
