Right to Dream has enjoyed a period of solid success. Over the last 8 years over 35 of our students have become professional players playing in the biggest leagues and tournaments, and our youth teams have proven to be among the very best in the world, winning many major youth tournaments.

In the United States, over 30 students have won full scholarships to leading schools and universities, including Georgetown University, Williams College, Boston College, University of Virginia, University of Michigan and UCLA. Last year Right to Dream had the No.2 MLS Superdraft pick and this year the No.1. Seven of our players will be playing in the league this year.

One of the things I enjoy most is that many up and coming academies in Africa have contacted me asking for help to build their own academies, with the similar objective of transforming lives through football, education and character development, as well as producing some exceptional footballers.

I consider the most promising of these academies to be Football for Good. Their inspirational leader, Adrian Bradbury, and his decision to uproot his family and relocate to Northern Uganda, is one of the great examples I have seen of someone deciding to get off his ass and do something about a serious problem in the world today.

After years of work Football for Good is now full of highly talented and driven student-athletes, ready to follow in the footsteps of many of the best Right to Dream graduates and take our common cause forward.

Having laid the foundations, Adrian and his team are ready for brand and club partnerships to shine a light on a truly exceptional story and create the correct development pathways for their best players and student-athletes.
