YOUTH FOOTBALL HOME PHUKET

Youth Football Home (Phuket) Foundation is a registered charity in Thailand. Our aim is to establish a loving home for orphaned and destitute boys and girls. The boys and girls receive comprehensive education at good local schools. They also enjoy daily coaching and training from fully qualified coaches in the game of football.

The Youth Football Home is built on 8 rai of land in the town of Thalang (about 150 metres from Wat Muang Komaraphat) on Phuket Island consisting of a dormitory home for 32 boys, a residential building for staff and a full-sized football field plus training areas. Construction began in October 2005. The dormitory and staff house were built and furnished by the beginning of May, 2006. The football field and the training areas were formed four months later.

The first group of nine boys from Bangkok and the northern provinces arrived at our Home on the 11 May 2006, and were enrolled at the Thalangwittaya School in time to attend the first day of the new school year. Today, we have an almost full house with many of the boys selected from football camps held on our grounds.

Youth Football Home has a full complement of qualified staff to look after the children. Under the supervision of a Thai Lady Guardian as Wardress, the staff includes two nannies, a cook and cleaning, security and grounds personnel. We have a qualified football coach from Europe as the sports manager who looks after the boy’s training and development in football. In addition, British and German Ex-International footballers are periodically visiting the Youth Football Home and conducting coaching sessions with our boys.
