Our goals

Future Academy combines pitch and classroom to make education exciting.

Future Football

Sport teaches teamwork, responsibility and discipline, but most importantly we give girls and boys freedom and offer an escape from a harsh reality. Our sessions also help to build relationships in a fractured community.

Future English

Refugees don’t have passports, so they need language to travel. Our aim is to ensure every child who enters our school leaves with a better understanding of the world outside and how to access it.

Our players evolve into students. 

We teach the language of the world, they learn how to write a new reality.

Our work

Field Operations

We provide English language classes, football coaching and tournaments, alongside educational and sporting field trips.

Raising Funds

All funds raised are spent on classroom supplies and trained teachers, football pitch hire and local coaches.

Future Aims

To provide English classes and football coaching to every child refugee in Beirut.
