Farhi’s Football School

The Football Academy was established in 2019, with 470 children registered in the academy. The academy is located in the city of Majar, which is like a home for children from the entire region and surrounding villages. Due to the war and in accordance with the instructions of the Home Front Command, the academy’s activity was halted. Consequently, parents did not pay fees, causing severe financial damage. We now seek help to meet our obligations towards suppliers and employees.

A few more words

I’m Fakhri Esakala, my journey in soccer began at a young age, playing in various teams. I harbored a vision and dream to establish my own soccer club where I could contribute to the development of children, guiding them towards greater heights—an aspiration I couldn’t fully achieve for myself. Today, I proudly lead a club and academy dedicated to fostering players and children, encouraging excellence, success, perseverance, and self-belief.
