Kids For Africa Sports Academy (KFA) was founded in 2009 by Asimwe Marvin and Atuyambe Raymond in the local community of Masajja B zone-Busabala, about 6km away from Kampala the capital of Uganda.
Before its founding, Marvin and Raymond had witnessed many of their peers driven to drug addiction and who had failed to complete any formal education due to the effects of poverty. Just as other ghettos, slums and minority urban neighborhoods, crime, substance abuse, obesity and academic failure was prevalent.
Vacationing in 2009, Marvin developed an idea and the purpose of creating direction for the young children who had little productive time in the community. As a youth soccer player in these same areas, he discovered that group sports fostered individual talent, cooperation, a sense of equality, improved health, transformation and helped to develop self- confidence.
Therefore KFA Sports Academy was legally established October 2015 as a non-profit. On February 2nd, 2018, the government of Uganda recognized the work of Kids for Africa and was legally permitted to operate as a charity organization under the National Bureau for NGO’s.
