Aston Villa and Zimbabwe international footballer Marvelous Nakamba has launched the Marvelous Nakamba Foundation back home.
The Foundation’s objective is to help and support local people who are in need and to improve the livelihood of young people.
The Hwange-born midfielder also revealed that the Foundation has so far paid tuition and exam fees for 1 000 young people and will continue to offer various kinds of support.
He said: Earlier this month, Nakamba reportedly applied for land from the Bulawayo City Council (BCC) to build a facility that will develop young talent and share life skills with youths.
Although details on the initiative were sketchy, the development came after Nakamba last year told BCC that he believed his move to England will help inspire young Zimbabwean footballers to aim higher.
