Uganda is among the four Sub Saharan African countries selected by UEFA, European football governing body for a special children’s project.

The three other countries picked are Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Angola and Cameroon.

UEFA Foundation for Children, in collaboration with Inter Campus are working on a project that will give 1500 children in these four countries greater access to education through football.

This follows UEFA’s partnership with Inter Futura, an organization that falls under the umbrella of FC Internazionale Milano (Inter-Milan).

Inter Campus is a social project that helps thousands of children in need around the world every year that previously happened in Israel and Palestine and Venezuela.

 “I am delighted the fruitful partnership between Inter Campus and the UEFA Foundation for Children will be continuing for another two years. This is the third project we will work on together, after projects in Israel and Palestine, and in Venezuela, and as always, both our organizations share the same goal – to help and improve the lives of as many children across the globe as possible.”, noted Javier Zanetti, the vice-president of FC Internazionale Milano noted.

The project rotates around gender equality, ethnic integration, street children management in rural areas, health improvement and crime prevention.

Uganda will zero on gender equality component.
