Volunteer for Sports, Health and Educational Projects in Ghana


The Soccer for Change Project is a soccer project initiated in 2013 to use soccer as a means of transforming lives of kids and youth in and around Gomoa District. The reason why this project was set up is that some Ghanaian kids and youth after school hours are lured into bad peer groups and these youth are engaged in a lot social vices like drug addiction, stealing etc, which goes a long way to affecting the future and also they are a lot of soccer talent but due to lack of with a lot of social vices such as robbery, stealing, hatred, discrimination etc.opportunities and exposure, they are not able to achieve their aim of playing professional football.

The Project has taken it upon itself to bring these young children who have the talent and passion for football or soccer and groom them to take up football as a profession or any soccer or football related work. They strongly believe that, once the youth are successful in their football careers and knowing and remembering where they from, it’s possible to turn to the needy/vulnerable youth in our society. Soccer for change could be further analyzed as the impact of football in changing the social environment. Football has created a lot of opportunities and benefits in different angles such as employment, entertainment, unity and friendship etc which virtually helps to do away.
