"The African Football Academy (AFA) developed a far reaching plan to locate and scout the ‘cream of young Africa football’ in the places where they live and play, and take them to school to practice and educate them so that one day they can take off for a bride future in European and United Arab Emirates leagues to develop competitive skills in a run-up to the Africa Peace Cup 2008 Match and the 2010 World Cup in Africa. Only the very best can make it to the top!”
In cooperation with the Africa Peace Cup Foundation and support from star players around the globe, the Africa Football Academy (AFA) proudly introduces the first in its kind Social Awareness Football Investment Fund, with the goal to establish football-schools for elite talent in (West)Africa. During a Target Market Quest, AFA professionals will judge extremely talented football players (age 15-18y) from Guinea, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Senegal and Sierra Leone with the objective to offer 50 of them a football scholarship each year with full college education and master classes in the Mano River Region. The lucky few receive a full time residential scholarship with a hard commitment from the Academy not only to provide the intensive full time education and practice, but also to finance the cost of living of the players entire family during the time of education. This social engagement strongly differentiates the Africa Football Academy from any other fund in this field and will generate goodwill, sympathy and support around the world.
