In collaboration with African communities and with the support of local and international stakeholders and partners, our goals are to:
Implement youth sport-for-development and supplementary education programs, ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing for the children and coaches we work with.
Provide training, accessible coaching resources and suitable equipment to develop African coaches, male and female, inclusively and equitably educating and nurturing community leaders.
Consistently building on our work in Africa – and with the help of an international network of volunteers, donors and partners – we initiate sustainable community projects and programs which inspire positive change.

Malawian special needs coordinator Wordsworth Rashid contacted us in 2011 with the aim of connecting BPF to Malawian schools. Wordsworth is now a full-time development officer for BPF's Malawi NGO, working with a growing team of staff to deliver youth sports programming, utilising a community centre we constructed on a 7-acre site in rural Lilongwe.
Meet the children and learn about the special people 'playing their part in the Pride', making BPF's projects a success. Could it be you?

"People in these rural village areas live in conditions which demand greater awareness and precautions to ensure they stay safe from the coronavirus. The supportive care work we're carrying out helps to shield these communities from this pandemic."

“BPF has really opened my understanding of how small the world has become. I have come to realise that in spite of our diverse backgrounds, the oval shaped ball has a way of breaking down all barriers.”
