Challenge

School children in rural Ugandan Primary schools do not play soccer during or after school hours, this is not because they hate it, they lack balls to play with, yet majority of them have talent in them. School budgets are too tight that they can not allow purchase of balls

Solution

This project will purchase 05 soccer and Net balls for each school to enable children play soccer so that they can develop their talent. Most of them would get scholarships if they are good foot balers.

Long-Term Impact

Youth/child development will be catered for, majority of these children if found with the talent, will be able to get scholarships in the best schools in the country, some of them will be invited to join soccer academies
