AMANDLA EduFootball is an international Non-Profit Organisation based in South Africa and Germany. The organisation’s mission is to create safe spaces that bring together the power of football and learning to empower youth and change lives. AMANDLA is endorsed by the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace.

Based on the impact of its initial project in Cape Town’s largest township, Khayelitsha AMANDLA has initiated a global Safe-Hub campaign. A Safe-Hub is a large Youth Football, Education and Community Development Centre that is placed at centre of urban hotspots of youth violence and unemployment.
By 2022, the Safe-Hub campaign strives:
• To identify 10 hotspots of violence, inequality, unemployment and poverty and establish Safe-Hub infrastructures, consisting of a top-class artificial turf field and an indoor youth development centre at the centre of such areas;
• To provide 20,000 vulnerable children and youth globally with daily access to 10 Safe-Hubs of holistic learning and development through a football-based after-school programme, with a thematic focus on health, safety, education, and employability;
• To provide a range of services, opportunities and support for 20,000 vulnerable children and youth globally, based on a transversal youth development approach.
