One of the key missions of Bridges to America is to EMPOWER and educate young adults and youth through soccer. We execute this mission both in the USA and in Africa.
Our operation in Africa is called Save-A-Thon For Africa. We take American volunteers to Nigeria, West Africa to play with, serve, and inspire the most vulnerable kids there by engaging them through soccer.
We are preparing for a humanitarian trip called a Soccer Safari in early 2017. If you are even remotely interested visit this page to learn more.
Save-A-Thon For Africa was launched in 2012 by our founder and his daughter, Kylie Miles in Ghana, West Africa. This program focuses on engaging American young women to visit Africa to provide soccer-related motivation, resources, and ideas to enable African youth to solve their own problems and inspire them to take ownership of their futures. This work is now primarily conducted in Africa’s largest democracy, Nigeria, West Africa and involves soccer clinics, humanitarian work and socccer tournaments called the Bridges Cup for the local youth run by American volunteers. Eventually the company aims to build a self-sustaining Save-A-Thon School for Girls there. For media coverage of the effort visit us here.
