A quality basic education is something which every child should get regardless of their family background, economic standing or community to which they belong. We strive to facilitate education in order to allow as many Ugandan Youth to experience a chance at a good livelihood.

Kids for Africa Sports Academy has been empowering and transforming the lives of Uganda’s vulnerable children and youth since 2009.  In order to divert youth from common effects of poverty such as crime, substance abuse and academic failure, sports has the power to improve the physical, proactiveness and social well-being of children and youth in Uganda. Group sports fosters cooperation, individual talent, a sense of equality, improves health, and transforms and develops self-confidence.

In Uganda, school dropout rates are very high and increase with every grade year completed.  What will the Kids for Africa Sports Academy do differently?

  • Teach the National Curriculum Standards
  • Room and Board on site for Every Student
  • Focus on the Importance of Group-Sports (Football/Soccer, NetBall, etc.)
  • Emphasis of learning critical life skills and potential career skills
    • Agriculture Fields of Crops and Orchards on Site to Feed and Teach Students
      • Horticulture & Agro-Processing account for 65% of Uganda's job market
    • Water Treatment & Engineering Skills
  • Hold students and teachers accountable for community involvement outside of teaching and learning academics.

The school will be built at our new building site located in the Mityana District, West of Kampala (the capital city of Uganda). We have purchased 5 acres of land (20234.3 square feet) with good road, power and communication systems access.

We have a vision of opening our doors within 5 years, but we welcome celebrating many small successes together along the way.  The completion of the school has been designed in 5 phases to accommodate a long term agricultural, and water treatment plan prior to the school build, and to create proper manageable milestones.
