Challenge

In many African countries, opportunities for young people are scarce. Communities struggle with ways to make money, and education is not provided for by the state. Many of these young people are also in need of shelter. These conditions result in young people in Africa living on the streets and engaging in criminal activities. There are currently more than 80,000 young people between the ages of 5-22 living on the streets of Sierra Leone, Cameroon and Ghana without any means of survival

Solution

The Football Project intends to identify, organize, mobilize, and encourage less privileged young people to actively engage in football to reduce the traumatic effect of living on the street. AYPAD's works on two main levels with on our project. First, AYPAD engages with the communities as a whole through sensitization, mini tournaments, and meetings with local youths. Secondly, AYPAD Participants will be trained 5 times a week and have education, feeding, medical and housing needs met.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train and educate 300 young people both male and female in the 3 identified target countries for three years then opportunities for porfessionsla contract will south out for players that are fit and qualified allowing them to gain an advanced education/ Training, be economic sufficient and raise out of poverty which will in future provide for their families, health and well being
