Coaches Across Continents has had several partners who have completed their Hat Trick Initiative as well as others who are still in the middle of their partnerships. The partners are as diverse as those who are working with former child soldiers (Friends of Orphans) to those working in the capital city of Kampala, and a final group that is a farming and fishing island in the middle of Lake Victoria.

Buwaya Youth Assocation. This island is located in the middle of Lake Victoria, near Entebbe. The extremely rural fishing and farming village is implementing a sports program to address their own needs which include illiteracy, health & wellness, and lack of opportunity for their youth.
Friends of Orphans. Founded by former child soldier Ricky Anwar, Friends of Orphans uses sport and vocational teaching to rehabilitate, re-educate, and reintegrate former child soldiers from Joseph Kony’s armies back into society. The students at FRO are both former child soldiers as well as other youth affected by war such as orphans and victims of war including rape.
Kampala School of Excellence Ministries. This home and school is run by Daniel Ntale, who has founded an orphanage to educate and train local youth in Kampala. His efforts have produced both international soccer players as well as successes at home, both on the soccer field and in the area of business.
