    Leoa Football Academy

    from Bengaluru (Bangalore) Urban, Karnataka


We are currently running a project of English and Empowerment through football for children (mostly adolescent girls) in two Bangalore slum areas. 

Over the last month, we have been working with the children every day, introducing and improving their basic football skills. Over the past month, the project has grown from 30 to now 50 children participating. 

Using their passion to learn the game, we can help them to improve their chances of upward mobility, their career opportunities, and their chances of living a life outside of the slums.

We conduct our session only in English to increase their fluency, understanding, and communication skills.

Learning football requires building confidence, discipline, boldness, and teamwork. These soft skills will come in extremely useful for all of these children as they build their future lives, and can be especially useful for adolescent girls, many of whom are pressured to give up their education in their early teens and who are not encouraged to build independent careers and lives for themselves.

The funds we raise will go towards the following:
1. Football Training Equipment (additional balls, cones, agility ladder, goals, etc)
2. Football Shoes and Sportswear for the children (Rs. 2000/child)
3. Daily Nutritious Breakfast Program for the children
4. Hiring Coaches to conduct daily sessions with the children.

We hope to raise enough to be able to run the breakfast program daily for the next 6 months and to pay our coaches for the next 6 months without raising additional funds.
