Warriors and Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba has applied for registration of a private voluntary organisation (PVO) as he intensifies his philanthropic efforts.
The Marvelous Nakamba Association (MNA) is aimed at empowering Zimbabwean youth with health and life skills through football and education.
The objectives of the association are to promote the inclusion of orphans and vulnerable children in sports in particular soccer through the establishment of soccer academies, to promote the socio-economic status of orphans and vulnerable children by linking them with foreign youth academies to enhance their exposure and opportunities and to fund for the health care of orphans and vulnerable children who are in need through utilising proceeds from soccer.
Nakamba already bankrolls the Marvelous Nakamba Foundation (MNF) which pays school fees for children across the country as well as providing football kits for young people.
MNF announced earlier this year they had paid school fees for 1 000 pupils in selected schools across Zimbabwe under its Education Assistance Plan.
The foundation, founded in 2019, announced they are targeting to assist 100 000 pupils in Zimbabwe by December and 1 million pupils in four years’ time.
