Young Stars Football Club Project - Port Harcourt & Okrika RS

This campaign seeks to help raise funds for two football clubs we are involved with in Nigeria. These clubs have two fantastic coaches that have achieved so much with so little. However they are in need of support in order to continue the good work.

In 2013, a handful of teenage boys (11-13) came to the door for a trick or treat. Their treat included a youth magazine. They came back later that day to discuss the magazine. They told us their story. They had a football club but their coach had to move to another town so they were at a loss as to what to do with themselves. They rallied their friends and we found them a coach, Godbless Amadi.

About a year later and in a somewhat similar fashion, a casual conversation with a young man revealed that he was desperately wanting to get to Europe to play for any club that would have him. His attempts to get a visa failed. We asked him if he played for a club in Nigeria? No he said. After some exploration as to the possibilities he had a eureka moment. I know a very good coach he said. We asked "Can you get him? Can you put a team together?" His eyes shone, he panted and he was off. A few hours later he showed up with Blessing .. (aka Coach) showed up.

Coach scheduled a game on Refinery grounds. We went to watch under the rain. They started a journey that saw them playing for the Local Government, etc. These two clubs were already in the communities. All they needed was some encouragement. They have done the work themselves and they have not looked back...

All funds raised for this project will go towards keeping this project up and running, Things such as new football equipment, facility costs & maintenance will be contributed to with your donation. Thanking you for your kind consideration.
