FC Nordsjællands ejer, Tom Vernon, fortæller om "Right to Dream Football Academy" og arbejdet med at give unge vestafrikanere mulighed for at forfølge drømmen om en karriere i fodbold, og samtidig give dem en uddannelse. Det er med til at give dem den ballast, der skal til for at kunne klare sig og selv give tilbage til samfundet.
Om Right to Dream Football Academy
Right to Dream Academy in Ghana was founded in 1999 by British social entrepreneur and owner of FC Nordsjælland, Tom Vernon to provide children from extreme poverty with the opportunity to build a better life for themselves and their families.
It started on a small-scale, training just a few boys on a dust pitch in Accra.
It has grown to become a fully residential international school, offering scholarships to talented children drawn from all over West Africa.
It is currently ranked as one of the Best Youth Academy’s in the world by bleacherreport.com.
In March 2010, the new Right to Dream Academy was opened, a $2.5million purpose-built facility, located 20 km south of Akosombo in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
A girls’ programme was introduced in 2013.
