Right to Dream Academy
The Right to Dream Academy in Ghana forges some of the finest young football players in West Africa, and in collaboration with FC Nordsjælland they're shaping the lives of a lot of young boys and girls, where they're being helped to find their purpose in life. It's not all about being a fantastic football player - academy graduates at the Right to Dream Academy are also expected to be good human beings, by learning to give back to their community and finding their purpose in life. And coming from poor families and from playing in the back streets of Accra, the capital in Ghana and finally getting the chance to play at the Right to Dream Academy is a dream coming true for many of the players.
"We identify strong characters with exceptional academic and footballing ability in one of the harshest scouting environments in the world." - Jeremy Seethal, Recruitment department
