Our Vision

Our Mission

To transform communities by inspiring and encouraging growth through education, sports & wellness.

To build communities by delivering an inclusive soccer academy, fitness AND wellness experience to all.


Knowing first hand the lack of opportunity for youth in West Africa, I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to play football and get a quality education. It is now my duty to give back to a region that has shaped me and a region that desperately needs these kind of opportunities.
— Foday Kabba - Founder of Kalabash Academy

Approach & values

Identify talented youth around West Africa and provide them with education, training, and character development. Through education and the game of soccer there is an opportunity to prepare and develop young people for the challenges of life.
