Miracle Africa International Foundation (MAIF) is a non-profit Swiss-based organization, Founded by Nadia Murabet in 2008. MAIF’s mission is to provide to African people, in particular to its most vulnerable citizens with a better quality of life by initiating and implementing projects and programs that encourage and strive for sustainable development, stability and peace on the African continent.
The Miracle Africa International Foundation has also developed an initiative “Education through Sports”, to be carried out in various African villages aimed at creating green areas where kids can practice football and other athletic disciplines, to supplement their school teaching with a training coach through the practice of sports as an effective tool of social integration.
“Education through Sports” is for all children from six years of age until adolescence and is based on three actions:
• Providing each village with a sports field, related services and equipment for the children
• Training educators through specialized coaching programs
• Providing educational scholarships for young African soccer talents
Project, Education through Sports, the foundation.
The Miracle Africa International Foundation is honoured to work on this project with Yasmin Behzadi for the country of Ghana as they both strongly believe in the power of education through sports to foster a new conscious and responsible generation that drives Africa’s future-forward.

Having had an admirable passion of Football since 3 years ago and despite the fact that she knew how difficult and challenging it would be, Yasmin dedicated most of her time to help the Young Players by sponsoring a selected number of talented Ghanaian players to make it professional and internationally recognized in football world. She recently visited the Ideal Ladies Football Club and Ideal Boys FC at Kaneshie Bishop Park in Accra, to discuss the challenges facing the club and ways to improve the lives of the players as well as promoting schooling alongside sports.
