Empowering Youth through Sport
What We Do
Our mission is to create a safe, inspirational space where children belong and where they can be nurtured to create a winning spirit for life. The Youth Academy aims to provide the equal opportunity to learn and play by offering after school soccer practices and coaching from Monday to Friday and participation in local soccer games on Saturday and Sundays. We have a Girls Team too, but its our Africa’s Girl Child Initiative that mentors our girls through the S4L SQUAD – which empowers, gives a voice and collates data through an Inspired Movement programme.
In order to be able to remain a valuable organisation and to grow even more in the future, we have set several goals that we pursue to accomplish.
What we Stand For

What Role can you Play?
Unfortunately providing soccer equipment is not enough to keep the dream alive, because the dream is not based on soccer. The dream is based on nurturing children on both the field and in their daily lives to eventually help them to make valuable and good life decisions in their future. Help to keep the dream alive!
‘The SPICE4LIFE Youth Academy has made huge impact on our community. Most of the kids all want to go and to play at the SPICE4LIFE Youth Academy. I would love to see the Youth Academy grow’Michael
‘The Spice4life Youth Academy has become a cause dearest to my heart’Emily Banya
“As I was working at Spice4Life myself I know how hardworking the team is. There was and still is so much effort spent in the Youth Academy so we can`t stop now! Those kids were born in a difficult environment with limited opportunities. I know that with a little help of us they can escape from their prediction and write their own life stories.”Simona Kipfer
