Help us #changethegame for talented children in MAlawi

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about Chigoli and our work developing pathways out of poverty for gifted children in Malawi, the world's poorest country per capita.

To bring you up to speed on what's going on in Malawi following CNN's Inside Africa on Chigoli in December 2018. Please watch the 'Chigoli: The Future' video on this page.

For a more in depth look at Chigoli, our background, operation and vision for the future please click here for our latest brochure.

In partnership with Building Malawi, we are starting to develop our new home on the outskirts of the Capital City, creating a quality training facility. Plans are in place to create one of the most environmentally friendly football academies in the world. Pitches shall be irrigated by solar pumps, the class rooms and dormitories being built are earth bag structures, utilizing only local materials and Chigoli is committed to installing renewable energy solutions to power our operation moving forwards. 

In addition Chigoli shall be developing a inclusive community football programme for the boys and girls in the community around the site and looking to partner with a range of NGO's to deliver health, education and social messages to children between 7 and 18.


We need your support to help us deliver this inspiring vision. We are looking to continue to develop our network of supporters around the world to drive Chigoli and our impact forward. If you're interested in visiting us in Malawi, please visit our Travel page and if you have other ideas or ways to get involved we'd love to here them.
