how we are helping


Football Chance Foundation works in both London and the compound of Mtendere, Zambia. The project uses ‘the power of football’ to make a difference to young lives within the two communities. The foundation looks to support young people both on and off the pitch. 

We strongly believe that sport has the power to make a difference to young lives and especially those who may feel they do not have a voice. We are passionate about working with young people within our communities and help them develop both their football and life skills. We believe we have a model and ethos that outlines ways in which young people can be supported through football. We have seen how football can impact young lives, inspiring our belief that football can be used as a vehicle for social development. 

“Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.” 

‘Nelson Mandela’
