To purchase 100 smart footballs for the youth team. With any money left over, to deliver hot meals to needy community members.

About us

Streatham academy football club is home to 150 kids of ages 5 to 19 yrs old. the club has been slowly growing through the years, since it was established back in 2016 by Hussein Mohamud Hussein. 

The aim of the club is to prevent youth from getting involved in crime and gang related activities, as well as providing them with a pathway through sports, mainly football. Not only do I help coach the youngsters in our books but also we help mentor them and challenge them to be the best they can be. 

Why we need your help

Many of our youth are from disadvantaged families suffering financial hardship, and in some cases single parent households. Since the Coronavirus outbreak, our club like many other clubs nationwide have had to halt all activities. 

For 4 weeks we have not been actively engaged with our youth team members, and having seen our peers in the game continue to deliver sessions online and our lack of resource and finance. 

I intend to give every 2 siblings in a household a smart football and those exceeding 3, 2 footballs. These are children from disadvantaged background and deserving of chance to continue being active amidst the difficult times we face.

The Challenge

I opted to challenge my self to raise £10,000 to help purchase 100 smart footballs developed to be used with a tv or smartphone at home. In return I will do 10,000 push ups over the course of Ramadan. 334 every 24hrs, which I will be filming and sharing on social media. 

Please join my challenge or create your own challenge by pressing the start fundraising button and set up your own page and we can reach the target together!


Helping the community

A majority of our members come from the Somali community in South London, of which I am part myself. Many Somali Muslim families are finding it a very hard time at the moment, and we would like to help ease some of those hardships by providing free Iftar meals for community members during Ramadan with any leftover funds.

Thank you for your help!
