28-year-old Tanzanian Emanuel Saakai founded Lengo Football Academy in Arusha. Over the last six months Saakai has been training street kids from his home village of Ngaramtoni to play competitive soccer. This community development work is being done without regular funding. The few donations Saakai has received for Lengo has gone straight to feeding and transporting the kids to their matches. This story was recorded at the first-ever Lengo vs. Future Stars under-11 boys game at International School Moshi.
