United Action for Children (UAC) is a Street Football World member which operates in two communities in the South West province in Cameroon.  UAC uses a comprehensive approach to educate the youth of Buea and Mamfe.  UAC operates a school in each location with an extensive education network that utilizes mobile tutoring, transportation for students, and rigorous academic standards that ensure that the children of these two communities (many of whom are underpriveldged) receive the best education possible.

Alongside this educational missive, UAC has added a sports component that Coaches Across Continents is helping to develop.  UAC sees sport as another opportunity to continue the educational process.  In 2012, the teachers from the UAC schools participated in our training sessions, as well as their coaches who already run youth teams in the communities.  With the games they have already learned from the CAC curriculum, they can continue to teach their students outside the classroom and achieve their mission of a better education for all.

In addition, UACs northern and more rural location of Mamfe, is now home to a brand new FIFA Football For Hope center which will have its official opening in early 2013.  This legacy from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa will serve as a hub for the community which will serve as an HIV testing an counseling center, a hub to congregate, and a field for continued learning and footballing opportunities.
