Reagan’s life has not been easy. With only four years he was abandoned near a toxic waste dump near the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala. He survived by stealing and selling scrap metal. There he was discovered by Anthony, a football coach who rescued him from the streets and formed a team with other children, the Pro Way Academy.

For these children, football is more than a sport, it means being part of a family, despite the adversities of the environment. Anthony works at night to bring food to his team, but he feels overwhelmed by the situation and needs more help.
