Project Africa


Project Africa is a charity dedicated to building sustainable football pitches for communities across Africa. 

Due to the lack of adequate playing surfaces, equipment and coaches which hinder the game's development across the continent, it is the goal of Project Africa to better Africa’s playing conditions and create opportunities for communities in need.

If you’re in the luckiest one per cent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 per cent.

—Warren Buffett
