About The Team

The U8 Boys are driven by the love of the game, by their friendships, and by the leadership of their coaches. This group of young ballers is the future of the game. Help others to play here in the states and in Ghana.

The Ghana Football Project, now a fully accredited 501(c)(3), continues to work with established local football academies and educational institutions in Ghana to provide opportunities for underprivileged young people and children, with a focus on education and sport.We raise money for the building and sustaining of schools. We send volunteers to both coach and help out. We provide equipment. And we share what we know on how best to battle the very real scourge of human traffickers, who capture the imagination of the most talented players, exploit their ambition by making impossible promises of a professional career and then ruthlessly abandon them, often leaving homeless or stateless on the streets of Europe.

Over the years, the Ghana Football Project has worked with players who have turned professional in Germany, had tryouts in Italy, the Netherlands and Cyprus and players who have joined High School and College teams in America. But the great majority of those we have worked with are in the process of achieving true success by gaining confidence and satisfaction from playing the game while obtaining a solid education.

It all starts with an abiding love of the beautiful game!
