Okwahu City Soccer Academy

Okwahu City Soccer Academy is a nonprofit organisation that serves as a community charity supporting Ghanaian citizens - mainly children in remote areas. The organisation provides opportunities for the disadvantaged through football and education as the boys attend their village school in Obomeng, Kwahu which is linked to the academy where they train every night after school until dark! The sports academy has been operating for three years now and in that time have trained more than 100 young talents under the age of 11, 13 and 15 respectively. Okwahu City have also participated in various district tournaments while a handful of players have received national trophy awards in categories such as best u13 player at the Ghana Milo tournament . In the off season the academy travel as far west as Kumasi as well as areas around Lake Volta to host trials in search of players for the club and to attend the school on site. 

The club have being honoured by an invitation to participate in the Berba Cup which is an international tournament in Comacchio, Italy at the end of April next year. Should we raise the funds then we will be the first African under 11 football team to compete in the history of the tournament. We will be in competition with European giants Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Inter Milan which everyone is very excited about as it is an amazing opportunity and what that doesn't come around very often! We need your financial support to make the young lads' dream come true.

Donations will be going towards:
- Airline fare from Accra to Bologna
- Food and transport for 16 man team (players and coaches)
- Passport and Visas

We hope that you support us so we can go to Italy for the Italian Berba Cup Tournament.
Many thanks
