The UEFA Foundation for Children supports iACT as we provide food, employment, preschools, and youth soccer academies for refugees, led by refugees.
We work hand-in-hand with refugees to provide food, create jobs, build preschools and establish youth soccer academies in camps around the world. It’s for refugees, led by refugees.
UEFA Foundation for Children have awarded funding to cover 47% of this latest expansion. We have secured another $25,000 from the Leonard & Robert Weintraub Family Foundation. We need support from people like you to secure the remaining amount to fully fund this expansion.
Only with the help of generous supporters like you, alongside the UEFA Foundation for Children, will we be able to support 8,810 refugee boys and girls in this project.
4 LITTLE RIPPLES
4 REFUGEES UNITED
THE IMPACT WILL BE...
GIRLS AND BOYS ENROLLED IN SOCCER ACADEMIES
CHILDREN ENROLLED IN PRESCHOOLS
REFUGEES EMPLOYED FULL-TIME
Refugees United Soccer Academy is a place for refugee girls and boys ages 6 to 13 to learn about teamwork, leadership, and peacebuilding, all while improving soccer skills. Led by 2 women and 2 men coaches from the community, the 4 new Academies will offer up to 8,000 refugee children a safe space to play, heal, and thrive.
Little Ripples supports refugee women as they implement child-centered, quality, and comprehensive early childhood education for refugee children ages 3-5. This project will support 4 new in-home centers, called Little Ripples Ponds, and provide 45,000 meals.
