Ten Toes Africa, Inc
In October 2010, our partnership with Maningi FC was formed, on a vision of transforming lives, through mentorship, education and sport. Our goal is transformational leadership of young boys and girls, to become future leaders in their families, schools, local communities, region and country. Today, we have several hundred children who have attended our annual Ten Toes Africa, Inc outreach weekend soccer tournaments, soccer clinics and day camps, dozens of children graduate High School and move on to graduate from University and Colleges across the USA.

1) Annual Soccer Tournament - Safari Cup International in AUGUST of every year
2) Outreach Programs - Visit Orphanage and Local Schools
3) Camps & Clinics - Conduct soccer camps at schools & remote sites
4) Scholarship - Provide assistance with tuition/fees to qualified students
5) University - Offer guidance to College bound student athletes. We contact coaches on the player's behalf.
6) Mentorship - Help students acclimate to USA or Europe - connect alumni
To further reach the disadvantaged areas, we have day camps and visit orphanages and schools. We request permission from headmasters or principals to visit and spend a day with the children. The activities include playing games, providing "Life Lessons" and "Life Coaching" on the opportunities that exist locally, regionally, and globally.
Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to cover tournament costs and scholarships. We are hoping you will assist with a one-time donation. Just a one-time gift of $50 will go a very long way!
** The impact $1200 could have on a child for a year in Southern Africa. A child could stay in school for a year - $50 in books, $400 a year for tuition, $50 for uniforms, $50 for medical coverage, $2/day for transportation and $2/day for food. **
Your support above and beyond our Tournament cost and scholarships!
TTA - Safari Cup International:
We host an annual tournament in Harare, Zimbabwe. We hope to extend this event to Victoria Falls or Cape Town. This event allows us to have talented young players converge into one location to be identified. Once identified, the player may be offered a scholarship to a college/university, or given guidance to play in Europe or USA. Since this tournament is limited to teams that apply to participate, we know we are not reaching the many disadvantaged players out there. Thus, we partner with clubs in the more remote areas to contact us with prospects. The player prospects would be offered an opportunity (on a scholarship) to play as a guest player at the tournament.

University and Clubs:
We aim to create a network that bridges relationships of talented young athletes from Southern Africa with colleges in the USA. We now have over 15 students attending universities and colleges across the USA, and many graduates who have returned to the fields of Southern Africa to coach and mentor the next generation.
We feel you understand and desire to play an active part in the betterment of the lives of these children! By giving disadvantaged children a fun two day tournament, filled with prizes, medals, balls, and equipment, you will give hope for an education and a future, that will ignite a renewed joy of staying in school. They will complete their studies, stay off the streets, and avoid gangs or drugs!
Your contribution will also play a role in awarding scholarships and eventually graduating from high school, college or university! We have hundreds more at-risk and disadvantaged children, who could be given this opportunity ....Play your part today!
We are reaching out to the rest of the world to be heroes to these young men and women through prayer and support. Be a hero for a day, and make a difference for a life time!
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” ~ (John 10: 10)
"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." ~ (Romans 13:8-10)
