The principal objectives and mission of Jersey 2 Africa 4 Football Foundation is to pursue opportunities and avenues in the short, medium & long-term to identify and implement means of resourcing, supporting and helping to develop the Mukuru football community with their football development and growth. This means to support and inspire young boys, girls, men and women in the area, who apart from enduring terrible living conditions are confronted daily with the temptation of drugs, prostitution and crime, to which many of them can easily fall victim.
