    What is crowdfunding?

    Story

    Being given the opportunity to excel and follow my dreams is an opportunity I want to be able to extend to a village in my hometown of Ghana, Akosombo, where enthusiastic youths are unable to excel due to the lack of educational resources and sporting activities available.

    As an avid fan of sports myself, in particularly football and experience in supporting and coaching minors in the UK, I decided to make it my mission to extend the benefits of education for uplifting the young youths' social, educational, and economic infrastructure through use of available resources and information.

    Established in 2010, Akosombo Charity & FC has been bootstrapped by myself and a handful of close passionate supporters. We are now in the process of registering our initiative as a charity and I require your support in progressing our efforts in educating and training the young people in Akosombo, West Ghana.

    Since starting the good works in Akosombo, we have found that there is a lack of skills in computer literacy and a lot of interest football, so we decided to focus on these areas and so far both have been very well received.

    To date we have had great success in nurturing young youths to semi-league status where the opportunity to sport professionally has now become a reality for our youths and is helping to inspire the younger generations and bring back hope to the lives of desperate families

    Whilst we are making great progress we are in need of more support to really bring to light our aims and objectives which is to continue to:-

    - improve education in rural communities
    - establish and equip youths with computer educational centres.
    - train and nurture youths in sporting activities, particularly football

    Thanks for your support!

    Hi I'm Frank I have a passion for sports and young people. My dream was to one day become a football coach and after a 1 month coaching course & success in coaching Blackheath FC for 6 months, decided to give back to a community in my hometown of Ghana, in need of support.
