We are really pleased and excited to announce the opening of the Lesotho Football For Hope Centre. The ceremony was held last Saturday, September 24th when the centre was officially opened by the centre host.

We are moving on to the Phase III of the Football For Hope program with the start of 7 new projects.

“20 Centres for 2010” is the Official Campaign of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™. Its aim is to raise funds to create twenty Football for Hope Centres for public health, education and football across Africa. The centres will address local social challenges in disadvantaged areas and improve education and health services for young people.

Check out the OAN page for the latest updates.
