Zanzibar Football Association works with youth teams throughout the area promoting fair play, and using football as a platform of change for social wellbeing. They want to take their organization to a new level by educating their coaches about using football for social impact. They believe they can make a bigger impact on the  children in their area if they use football for more of a life skills tool. They want to cut down on the youth drug use, and give the children more opportunities. Our first trip to Zanzibar and Pempa were amazing experiences in 2013, we are very excited for 2014.
