Real Mercy Football Star Academy

Youtube video .

Real Mercy Football Star Academy is run by local Ugandan volunteers. The coaches are driven by their sincere shared passion and a deep sense of commitment to developing soccer skills amongst young children, in order to further their education.  They work with underprivileged children to help them get into reputable schools on soccer bursaries (scholarships).
The Academy faces challenges, as it does not have the resources for the necessary soccer equipment. They improvise cones and goal posts from materials such as plates and bricks. Many of the young players play barefoot or share footwear. 

Education for Influence wants to support Real Mercy Football Star Academy by helping them get the equipment they need.
