The organizations mission is to unlock the competitive advantages of war-recovering and emerging regions to help develop talent, as well as, drive education, mentor the youth in these regions and lead to social change in the area. By using a proven global youth soccer academy model, the organization aims to use football (soccer) clubs to enrich and educate the youth in war torn areas. Their hope is that this program will provide financial returns and opportunities for the surrounding community.


This is the organizations first program partnership, they are starting with a very small budget and will be counting on the photographers work to help them fundraise and display the effectiveness of their program for further projects. Working with a local soccer club in Uganda, the organization will coach and mentor youths in the area bringing them together and hopefully redirecting their emotions and efforts toward bettering their skills and social relationships, instead of focusing on past war times.
