Hope365 Football Academy

Greenisland Football Club are partnering with Hope365 to raise funds to provide a football coach for teenage Street Kids in Shashemene, Ethiopia. Football is a universal language. We believe that the discipline associated with playing football will help the boys move away from their addictions and other antisocial behaviour and help them get their lives on course. Having held a one week football academy last summer we believe that providing a coach over the next year would help prepare for a bigger scale football academy in summer 2019. This would be phase one of a strategic project which will result in the creation of a facility for the football academy as well as a drop in centre for Street Kids and vulnerable girls.
