Football For A Cause (#FFAC2014) is an annual fundraiser which brings together a fine blend of young Nigerian celebrities, artistes, On-air-personalities and comedians with the goal of raising funds to support education for the less privileged children in Nigeria.
The novelty match took place on Sunday, October 12th, 2014, where Nigerian entertainment stars such as Mr Raw, MayD, Lynxxx, Timi Dakolo, Seyi Law, Senator, Elenu, Bez, Nedu, DJ Neptune amongst others played against the All-Star Team of the TwitPremier League at the University of Lagos Sports Centre.
This blend of football, entertainment and philanthropy project of the StayInSchoolng Initiative hopes to raise money to place 400 disadvantaged children in school with the aim of bridging the evident gap in the country’s education sector. StayInSchoolng currently supports 200 children across 8 primary schools and recently held a fundraiser to provide best graduating students under the SiSNG umbrella secondary school scholarships.
