Children play sport in Africa
Even though many African children struggle to get enough food and money, millions of them love sport.

Football's really popular and some kids even use it to make money or help educate other children.

There's a kids' football programme in Uganda which takes children from all backgrounds.

The academy formed Uganda's top under-13s footie team.

Sporting facts:

The first proper kids' football teams were set up in Kenya in 1987.

Some girls find it hard to play sports in some African countries because they have to stay at home and help to look after the family.
