Our goals are to mobilize resources for the development of sustainable sports facilities and secondly, facilitate the transfer of knowledge in all its spheres to the Africa game.

  • Sustainable sports infrastructure: Building high quality sustainable sporting facilities with a focus on the terrain (playing surface) and supporting infrastructure to allow safe participation in sports. These facilities provide a meeting point that help build a sense of community and reduce social isolation. They also provide employment as permanent features in a community.

The FFA also plans participate in vocational education and training to prepare youths for the job market.
