The problem the Nakivale Football Academy is solving:
– In Nakivale Refugee Camp there is a lack of occupation of young people who don’t go to school and after class for those who go and this lead to drug, alcohol and sex
– Those who don’t go school are not sensitized on how they can take care of their health to face these problems mentioned above. Also we do not forget that Uganda is among the country which are affected with HIV and particularly Nakivale settlement and young people don’t discuss with parents about sexuality in their family because in Africa sexuality is like a taboo.
– In Nakivale settlement there is trauma which comes from different facts like, loss of parents, separation with their families, wars, nostalgia, loss of hope of becoming someone especially in football.
– Lack of connection among the refugees as they come from different countries.
