Mission

Our mission is to run Hope Academies in South Africa. Hope Academy is an intensive and holistic football based program that provides underprivileged children in Africa the opportunity to fulfil their God-given potential on and off the field.

Programs

The Hope Academy curriculum is built upon three pillars which are of equal importance in player development: Football: Hope Academies offer an intensive football program delivered by trained coaches. All Hope Academies are run on our football philosophy which allows each player to develop and progress according to their ability. Faith: Hope Academies are developed on Christian foundations which model and teach biblical life principles. Whilst Hope Academies have Christian foundations, we warmly welcome children and young offenders from all religious and cultural backgrounds and all players are respected and treated equally. Future: Education is a priority to everyone within Hope Academy. Our Life Skills curriculum and school reporting process enable children and young offenders to make positive choices for their future and achieve their full potential in their education. Every Hope Academy is used as a catalyst for community development and runs football tournaments, educational workshops, coaches education, football clinics and schools football programs. All these programs use football as a medium to teach underprivileged children life skills.
