Raised Funds to purchase land in partnership with Kids For Africa
#LandPurchase – Funds were raised to purchase 5 acres of land for Kids For Africa Sports Academy. This is the first step in building a school to educate at risk boys and girls. This is part of an ongoing initiative to purchase upwards of 33 acres of land. Once built, this school and academy will house, feed, teach and coach hundreds of children. The school will provide skills training, and en-grain community service and responsibility so that once they graduate, they can be successful members of society. KFA has found land that will enable them to be sustainable, and self-sufficient. They’ll also be able to teach this to upcoming youth, granting them strong survival skills, a leverage-able marketable skill-set, and teach them community resilience. The land is to be held in the registered charities’ name: Kids For Africa.
