A football academy in Uganda has recently become an unfamiliar sight: JAKO balls are rolling, while young, sport-loving men are training in Bayer 04 Leverkusen jerseys. The scene is the result of a jersey donation from JAKO and the excellent work of the aid organization Vision for Africa (Vision Für Afrika). The organisation has set itself the task of offering disadvantaged children and young people in Africa a perspective.
JAKO are happy to pass on the JAKO team spirit to the youngsters in the form of a jersey and ball donation. Sport connects and conveys camaraderie and joy to the young people of the Academy. Helmut Hago from Vision for Africa said, “The enthusiasm with which the soccer-enthusiastic young men in the jerseys play and train is great.”
The pictures also speak of a high level of commitment and passion. Other jerseys and balls were also passed on to friendly soccer schools in Uganda to benefit other children and adolescents.
JAKO are happy to be able to help the Academy teams in Africa! Hopefully JAKO balls will continue to roll in Uganda in the future and, together with their jerseys, will help Vision for Africa’s projects.
