Our Story

Future Stars Academy believes in the power of sports. We are a non-profit organisation focusing on children, youth and sports (mainly football) with the aim to empower them and enhance their physical and mental health.

The Future Stars Academy is operating in Arusha and Moshi, Tanzania. We provide football training and competition (including attending tournaments) giving disadvantaged children from 6 to 20 years. Furthermore, we actively engage with local communities and support community development through various types of sports activities

We want all children and youth to have fun and hope, and at the same time build their physical and mental resilience to cope with life. FSA offer them a chance to develop in soccer and give them access to education and future employment.

The academy has one rule: No school – No Play.

Our Purpose

Future Stars Academy wants to pursue sustainable social development for the youth by working on leadership, empowerment and sense of responsibility within the kids. We call it social development through sports. It is not ‘just’ about playing football, but about using football (and sports) as a tool to touch base on other crucial issues for the youth in Arusha and Moshi and help them in becoming responsible members for their local communities.
