Welcome to My Rally Campaign
- PEPA is a Nonprofit Organisation working at community level to respond to the need of the most vulnerable people in Africa, we work to promote and save the human dignity, for this PEPA/Organization initiated two soccer teams to empower refugees and local disadvantaged young people, youth within the communities by giving them hope to become champions in the Soccer and various areas in the world.
- I am happy to share with you the development of our Soccer team of refugees in Uganda, with the aim of empowering young people, refugees from different countries in Uganda, We initiated this team in April 2016.
It is a brave and champion team due to its multicultural background, the team is made of refugees from 5 countries and Uganda makes the 6th nationality.
Many young people picked interest in the team in the way to be entertained in the football in stead of surrounding in streets developing risky behaviors.
So far we have refugees from Congo DR, Burundi, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, Ugandan and the coach from Nigeria.
Why I'm Raising Funds
- We are raising the funds to enables us to sustain our refugee players , disadvantaged in assisting their basic needs such as food, clothings, buying soccer equipment, and supporting in emmergeny medical aid and getting some support when practicing with various football clubs.
How I Got Here
- We started this team in march 2016 in Kampala and the one in Congo, Goma in June 2016, the most interesting and challenging is when bringing youth who fleed their home countries to seek for asylum and when not speaking the same language, it was not an easy task, but it turned to a success to bring together a young generation of youth from 6 countries together to share and decide on their destiny to become the global champions, it is surely exciting.
- Our teams are experiencing challenges, first of all raising the full equipments for both Congo and Uganda team, assisting their basic needs in terms of food, clothings, accommodation, medical assistance .
- We first of all thank the Government of Uganda for allowing PEPA/Organisation to empower the Young generation in sports, much thanks to the existing families of refugees that are encouraging them to join the team and to the PEPA staff for their devotion and determination to have and make strong the PEPA. FC team.
