The Azira Micheal Youth Foundation
we are a 501 (c)(3) organization.
The Azira Micheal Youth Foundation was born as an expression of gratitude to someone whose unconditional love and support could only be repaid by paying it forward.
Our mission is to use sports as a vehicle to give children in Uganda access to education, nutrition and character development.
Without the help of volunteers and generous donors like you, we couldn’t afford to help the children we seek to serve by the means and opportunities to follow and fulfill their dreams.
To build an athletic and scholastic facility that will become a beacon of hope, love and prosperity for Ugandan youths and its people, while serving as a model for other communities.
To use sports as a vehicle to give kids in Uganda access to education, nutrition and character development.
Football is the number one sport in Uganda and for so many a way out to a better future. Through our annual soccer tournament - Pearl of Africa Youth Championship, we provide a platform to showcase their talent and opportunity to be scouted for scholarship. Visit our facebook page

A Bit of Background
I am Micheal Azira born in Uganda and grew up in the slums of Kampala the capital city. I have always had passion for soccer and helping others, but I could not do it because of the limited access to resources needed to change my life and other kids in need. I grew up playing in dirt streets with a ball made out of plastic bags, but this did not stop me from chasing my dream of being a soccer player and helping other kids. Someone helped me to become what I am today: a professional soccer player in Major League Soccer. I have gone from playing on dirt fields to playing in the best stadiums in the United States of America. When I went to say thank you to the person who helped me to reach my dream, all he said was "Pass it on," meaning that I should also help another kid in need. So my friends and I have decided to start this foundation to help other kids through sports and by finding them education and soccer opportunities. Join us in helping other kids who do not have access to education, health care, and soccer opportunities. Help us to be the change that you want to see in the world.
