What we stand for

At Lengo Football Acacdemy we believe that all Tanzanian youth deserve to have the opportunity to reach their potential in life. We take young people on a powerful journey from scoring goals to realising life goals where individuals, families and communities thrive.

We are a group of passionate changemakers inspired to make a difference in this world.  We believe that all Tanzanian youth should have the opportunity to reach their potential in life and we work tirelessly in a volunteer capacity to positively impact the lives of the youth that we serve.
