Inspiring and dedicated coaches

Boys everywhere love football. But for these budding sportsmen in the video, the Falls Academy practice sessions are even more important than for most youngsters. It keeps the children, many of them orphans, off the streets.

The coach of the juniors explains that the training not only gives the children something to do, having football dreams also lifts their spirits.

And the children can see that dreams can come true. One of their coaches is Augustine Mbara, who plays for the Dynamos, a premier league club in Zimbabwe. He helps at the sessions so that all the boys can be inspired to be successful in their lives.

And who knows? In a few years time, another ‘Augustine’ may appear from this group to follow in his football steps.
