Future African Leaders

welcome to el cambio ACADEMY

More than football

As a football academy based in Uganda, our passion is to change lives on and off the pitch for both boys and girls.

We want our students to become future African role models in order for them to inspire, support and help others in their communities, who have not had the opportunity to join El Cambio Academy.

Our Documentary

Thomas Thor founded this football academy in Uganda in 2016. His dream was to create an environment of which the aim is to help the youth access to a better life through the power of football and education.

Turning the dream into reality was not as easy as it seemed. In this episode you will witness the initial challenges we faced in setting up the academy.
