BONG INVESTMENT FOOTBALL ACADEMY
The Future Is Now
WELCOME TO BONG INVESTMENT FOOTBALL ACADEMY
Love Yourself, Love One Another
Bong Investment Football Academy (BIFA) goal is to create a healthy environment where kids can play the beautiful game as well as being successful in the classroom. The expectations and regulations are very simple and strong. Before any kid (s) can be part of the academy, that kid should be ready to study harder and pass his lessons before even participating in the training. BIFA is not just focusing on football. We’re also trying to motivate all of our players to perform better in school.
This organization's goal is to help those less fortunate but talented kids whose parents want to see their lives being transformed into a brighter future. We strongly support a soccer program that would help those kids in poverty back in Liberia. BIFA offers teams from age 6 to 17 with over 150 plus players recruited from all districts within Bong County and Liberia at large. BIFA is not just focusing on football but encouraging parents of the kids to be involved in the empowerment of their kids. Football serves as a motivation to strive for educational greatness!

Education is a key essence for modern society. Education is key to turn a weakness into a strength. It offers different tools and ways to understand problems that lay ahead of us and helps resolve them. It also molds people into leaders and shows them how to lead with true values.
BIFA is not just focusing on soccer/football. We’re using soccer/football as a tool to motivate all of our players to perform better in school. BIFA is partnered with 26 schools within Bong County. By partnering with schools within the county, this allowed us to help take kids out of the streets and put them in school.
