We are the global soccer initiative. Our mission is to improve the lives of underprivileged people and to strengthen their communities by providing them with a positive environment that facilitates their development athletically, educationally, and nutritionally. Using the power of soccer and education as the vehicle to empower the world’s underprivileged youth, CANFF provides their student-athletes with the knowledge, life-skills and encouragement to live a positive, meaningful lifestyle.
1. To provide our student-athletes with an opportunity for athletic and academic growth by giving them with the necessary tools with which to do so.
2. To engage youth in the world's poorest countries through the power of soccer, empowering them with the life skills to adopt healthy behaviors. Additionally, we see this as an opportunity to help student-athletes realize their dreams of playing soccer at a collegiate and/or professional level.
3. To show young people the benefits of choosing soccer and education as potential career paths.
4. To reduce violence and drug addiction, and use soccer as a forum to uplift communities materially, spiritually, and psychologically.
