ABOUT
LENGO FOOTBALL ACADEMY

Lengo Football Academy started in Arusha, Tanzania, which is a predominately Maasai area, with a population of over four million people. Although Arusha is the home of world’s famous safari hub, close to the iconic Mt Kilimanjaro, most of the inhabitants live below the poverty line. Despite the struggles, even to afford a half a meal a day, they live and breathe football.

95% GOES TO THE FIELD

Most of our administrative costs are being funded by private donors and therefore all donations except for bank fees go directly towards supporting youth programs at Lengo Football Academy in Tanzania.

WHY FOOTBALL?

Football is globally recognised as a tool to facilitate positive social change, is a practical way to engage young people in their communities and is a universal language that brings people together no matter what their background.
