We are very pleased and honored to announce the practical completion of our Football for Hope centers in Rwanda and Ghana. Both of the centers are completed and awaiting the very last details for the Center Hosts to move in. Both projects are a unique example of how a thoughtful design and attention to materials and details can create beautiful buildings empowering their communities.
A huge thanks to our Design Fellows, Killian Doherty and David Pound for their commitment, perseverance and amazing work on these projects. It was a great experience working with you and we wish you the best of luck for the future!

Using renewable and reclaimed components mixed with local and natural materials such as bamboo, David Pound, in association with architect Joe Addo (responsible for the concept design), created a beautiful and innovative building that celebrates the community and the location in which it sits.
