About Us

Ascent Soccer, a social impact organization, transforms the lives of young men and women in some of East Africa’s poorest countries by providing opportunities for comprehensive education, critical life skills and character development -- combined with world-class soccer skill development. 

Based in Malawi & Uganda, with registered charity operations in the USA and Canada, Ascent was founded in 2014 and works with over 85 boys and girls carefully selected from across East Africa. Ascent graduates have gone on to win life-changing scholarships at elite global boarding schools, with other Ascent scholars representing the academy in youth national teams and at major European club tournaments. Ascent’s vision is to guide youth to realize and reach their potential, growing into exceptional young men and women who not only re-invest in their own communities, but provide opportunities for the success of future graduates.

Many grassroots projects spread their resources across thousands of participants over short periods, with the goal to reach as many deserving young people as possible. Combined with that mission, we also aim to drive systemic, lasting change by invest deeply in talent, desire and promise, catalyzing a small but mighty group of young leaders to leverage the opportunities and platform provided by Ascent Soccer, across East Africa.
