The organization was founded by Mr Kanamugire Fidele with nick name “Serieux”, who have worked as missionary for 10 years as sport ministry leader for an International organization called “Youth With a Mission” and his passion was to use sports especially football as popular game in Africa to transform the lives of street children and forgotten youth in the community who are living without hope for the future.
Through this platform of using Football, many youngsters have developed the talents to play Football, others have developed leadership capacity to become Youth Coaches, also many of the street Kids were able to get out of the street and got opportunity to go back to school and others went to attend Vocational Training Schools.
In 2011, after getting his qualification in UK as Youth Football Coach, he put together all the young and adult coaches he mentored for many years and started a non profit organization called "Play For Hope Rwanda", with the main goal of using Sport to raise up many golden talent by implementing professional programs from grassroots level up to elite level, especially focusing on the underprivileged community in Rwanda.
The Second aim was to teach the Rwandan young athletes to have faith in God for their future success not to believe in “which doctors” during their performance in the field and out of the field in normal life, also empowering them through life skills teaching to help them develop as good leaders and provide opportunity for education for those who are in need.
Today the organization continue to grow in it’s mission and we are serving more than 500 youngsters in all our activities around Kigali and we have 15 volunteer youth coaches and staffs .
Our inspiration word“ Today our sport is not good but we can change tomorrow by preparing well our youngsters today”
