The project involved building twenty new Football for Hope Centres across Africa. Centre locations were built based on compelling need, combined with the prospect of partnership with viable charities in each area.
The centres contain functional areas based on specific needs such as meeting halls, counseling rooms, clinics, libraries and computer centres. Every centre also has a pitch, not just to play football but to educate and inspire through football.
One of the mandates of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Legacy Trust is to provide ongoing funding to the charities operating out of these centres, ensuring obviously that they meet the criteria for funding and submit regular reports on their activities to the Legacy Trust.
