Story

[p]Billa Mahmud, founder of Future Leaders UCC in Ghana, was a visionary man who felt passionately about changing the lives of children for the better. Born and raised in a small town just outside of Accra, he knew poverty and it's affects first hand. Recognising the need for change he started teaching children, who were not in any form of education, basic Maths and English underneath a mango tree. Billa understood how to engage children and inspire them to learn and change their own destiny. The project grew organically over the next 18 years to what it is today; a school of 196 children with many more in Junior HIgh and Senior HIgh education. He also set up football teams for different age groups to encourage positive behaviour and team work and recognised the need to help families in setting up small businesses. His good will, generosity and ambition to make a difference spread far and wide and touched so many people's lives in his short time on Earth. Shortly before he died, Billa saw the beginnings of his dream come true in the form of a permanent school structure. This school will make a difference to hundreds more childrens' lives and will be a lasting legacy of his work. Please help us to continue Billa's legacy by donating whatever you can.[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/re=youtu.be?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo]
