Chigoli Academy squad to San Francisco
The French American International School (FAIS) of San Francisco is traveling to Malawi to help fund and develop football within Malawi. On the April 6, the students of FAIS will celebrate the International Day of Sport for Develoment and Peace by inviting a selected group of young Malawians to participate in a football event at one of the country's premiere stadiums. 
The students of FAIS have developed links and friendships with the young players they've met in Malawi. 
This has led students to create lasting pen-pal relationships, forging bonds that transcend the differents lifestyles, cultures and demonstrate how sport can link people from all backgrounds, cultures, and countries.
Last years students, are currently attempting to raise funds to give young players and scholars from Malawi the opportunity to travel to San Francisco to experience a contrasting world to the one they have grown up in and know.
Chigoli is primarily funded mainly through these relationships with sports tours that create friendships between two different worlds. The rest of the funding is generated through the founders which helps fund initiatives created by Chigoli that offer sport to all participants, including homeless youths, blind children and other marginalised groups within country.
