Today we venerate our student-athlete, Blessing Kieh who exudes determination and preservation by soaring through life's hurdles and remaining resolute. A story such as Blessings' is one which lifts the heart and for which we are proud of the work we do as it epitomizes tenacity to ascend to nobler heights despite the humble surroundings in which it is etched.

Breed in the lowly slump of West point, Blessing became one of our first student-athletes recruited in 2015 who over the course of six years with us thrived, dazzled and oozed excellence both in academics and in soccer. She successfully displayed exemplary technical qualities on the pitch and consistently maintained 90% average – a feat that is really astounding. Her zest to continue to clamour for quality education due to her superior cognitive intellect was recognized in 2020 when she was awarded a four–year scholarship valued $USD260,000 to attend Westminster in Connecticut, USA but due to the unfortunate outbreak of COVID-19 she was compelled to take classes online via zoom.

But on Sunday, the 11th of July, she departed Liberia for Westminster, Connecticut, USA where she will continue her academic and athletic development.

Blessing is an oasis of brilliance, valor, integrity and humility – an enviable legacy that inspires and will continue to radiate even from afar.

We at LEAD MFA will miss Blessing for everything she embodies and we are proud to call her our own!

Happy International Day of the African Child.

Our future as a continent depends largely on the quality of education our children receive and it’s a collective responsibility to make this a reality.

This day is celebrated on June 16 every year to honor those who participated in the Soweto uprising in 1976. It continues to raise awareness to improve the level of education provided to African children.

Our Story

LEAD Monrovia Football Academy (LEAD MFA) is the flagship LEAD Africa academy. LEAD MFA opened in 2015 as the first school in Liberia to combine quality education with elite football training. We provide underprivileged boys and girls with high-quality academic classes, elite football training, good nutrition, healthcare, life skills, and pastoral care. We are accredited by Liberia’s Ministries of Education, Youth & Sports, Gender, and Finance.

In the 2019-20 school year, we have 105 student-athletes, ages 8-16, in grades 3-8. Our student-athletes represent 10 of Liberia's 15 counties. We currently operate in rented residential facilities in Konola, Liberia. In February 2019, we purchased 10 acres of land in Careysburg, Liberia. We hope to move into our new residential campus in 2020.

LEAD MFA's vision is to produce Liberia's next great doctors, businesspeople, politicians, engineers, athletes, musicians, and whatever else our students choose to pursue. Each year, we will continue to add a new academic grade until we reach 12th grade. From there, our student-athletes will access whichever opportunity best suits them. We are building a robust global network to ensure there are ample opportunities, including the African Leadership Academy, prep schools and universities in the US, professional football clubs in Europe, and tech hubs across Africa.
