At the core of all WKU work is sustainability. In South Africa WKU has a unique partnership with the KwaZulu Natal Department of Health which meets 65% of our costs. The Health Academy and FIFA Football for Hope Centre are built within the grounds of Edendale Hospital Regional Hospital and we are the flagship youth clinic in South Africa.

In Ghana WKU is pursuing various social enterprises to help ensure long term sustainability with all profits ploughed into our youth programmes. These enterprises include:

OUT Restaurant

OUT Restaurant and Bar

Utilising the Academy in the evenings OUT restaurant, Bar and Conference venue provides both local and international cuisine at affordable prices for all.  Not only does the restaurant provide a beautiful setting to meet, but we are also able to raise awareness of our work with patrons.

The Third Half

Travel, play soccer and change the world with our partners The Third Half

The third half is a social enterprise at the heart of a movement that seeks to turn soccer into a global force for good, being the world’s first social enterprise to combine sport, travel and the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. The third half organises experiences hosted by trusted local NGOs, in which travellers can experience how football is changing the lives of people all around the world. These experiences are designed to open the participants’ eyes to social issues and generate a real impact, by providing the NGOs with a sustainable source of income to ensure their sustainability.

WhizzKids United FC is our very own football academy. Here we Coach over 120 youth aged 8 years to 23 years Monday to Friday and all players are registered with the Ghana Football Association. We are always on the local for the next Lionel Messi!

This project is still being undertaken.

Yellow Yellow adventures

Yellow Yellow Adventure

Just when you thought WKU couldn’t get any more exciting or perhaps dumber, we’ve teamed up with Yellow Yellow Adventure! Yellow Yellow Adventure presents the ‘Wild West’ – motoring stupidity on a West African scale. Basically, driving a ‘tuk-tuk’ through Ghana, Togo and Benin and hopefully back to Ghana.

This is your chance to come and experience WhizzKids United Ghana and drive 2,000 plus miles in a ‘yellow-yellow’ (the name given to tuk-tuks in Ghana) over dirt-track pothole ridden roads and raise money for WKU. If you are tired of holidays lazing on a beach sipping cocktails this is your perfect chance to throw away those speedos and grab your safari gear and embrace motoring madness African style. The ‘roads’ are more likely to throw up monster potholes than they are fuel stations or a charming roadside cafe.

If you have a group of 15 crazy friends or more, we can also look at offering you a bespoke ‘Wild West’ safari from 7 to 21 days. Typically, ‘yellow yellow’ adventures are 9-15 days and launch just after Christmas Day or in July/August.
