White Croc Utd Football Academy, Kartong, Gambia.

White Croc United  Football Academy is based in Kartong, West Coast Region, The Gambia. The academy was founded in 2017. We believe that football is more than just a game, it is something that can bring people together and teach them important values that can be taken into everyday life. At White croc United F.A we believe children's welfare is number one and that all children, regardless of their age, culture/tribe or religion, have the right to be protected and enjoy the beautiful game.

Our ultimate goal is promoting grassroots football, train and guide young talents to reach their potentials, promote inter-community football, Foster better learning experience in football and to produce the best players at professional levels. We are committed to creating and preserving the safest possible environment for children to enjoy playing football without interrupting their school calendars, domestic works and protect them from all forms of child abuse.

As we grow we need new goal posts, training equipment, shoes and shirts.  We have listed the costs of getting these locally with our currency, which is the Gambia Dalasi. We have broken the costs into 3, which is basically 1,000 euros for equipment, 1,000 euros for Training shoes for our 60 members.

Last of all our dream for the future is to have our own football pitch as we currently have to share with the community, this would cost another 6,000 euros. This is a wish and maybe we can start to get someway towards achieving this.

8 New Footballs      D 12, 000 (1500 x 8)   (approx 200 euros)
