Borneo Football
The Power of Football Inspiring the Next Generation

Your gift will help these children reach their life goals!


Borneo Football International Academy kicked off in 2015 with just 14 children - word quickly spread and today, 4 years later, the Academy has 340 players including three all girls team and reaches more than 1000 students in local schools through football training, health and education programs


The minimum wage for people in Central Kalimantan is well under $200 a month. Parents find it hard just to send their children to school - let alone provide them with extracurricular activities. Our players can take part in not only a wide range of football activities but also health and educational programs.


Due to the COVID 19 outbreak life as we have known has changed and at Borneo Football International Academy, we have been in the process of adapting to the new arising needs to better serve our young participants. We shifted the focus of our activities to ensure the safety of all of our staff and beneficiaries by providing COVID 19 educational information to all participants related with the prevention of the virus transmission. One of our main concerns is to support the children that are now isolated at home and to support the families that are currently unable to secure an income. BFIA team is working on a program to provide support to 1.200 Kalimantan children through, nutritional assistance, educational material, masks, sports material and online tutorials. Additionally, we are distributing hygiene kits and food to local families. Currently Borneo Football International Foundation is cooperating with Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM), the local Government, the Police, the Health Department and other institutions.

We hold weekly training sessions and players test their skills in official tournaments. We also organize regular football clinics and Summer camps where we match off against players from around Indonesia and overseas. Our ‘Happy Feet’ program supports players from low income families with shoes, uniforms, socks and jerseys.

Central Kalimantan has one of the highest stunting rates in Indonesia, and we found many of our young players were underweight and below average height. We initiated a program to address this issue, providing nutritional drinks during practice, information on healthy living and a health assessment to measure their physical development.

In Central Kalimantan, nearly 1 in 3 children aged 7-15 drop out of school mainly due to economic pressures. We support our players with educational materials and school fee subsidies. Sponsorship is also provided for English and computer classes, vocational courses and conservation activities through our partner NGO-YUM (Yayasan Usaha Mulia).


We are always looking for talented people from Indonesia and abroad to support, not only our football training but our education, health & nutrition programs, social media, and fundraising goals. We also welcome local and international groups to our innovative summer camps and football clinics.

Most of the people who work with us do it purely for the love of football and to give back to the community.


There are many ways you can help us build for the future. So be a part of Borneo Football and help change a child's life.


Every gift, no matter how large or small, can help our boys and girls reach their personal goals


A gift of USD 195 supports our Child Development Fund and one child’s participation in all our programs. You can sponsor as many children as you like.


We are quickly outgrowing our current training facility and have started work on a multi- purpose football campus on a 7-hectare plot of donated land. If you are interested in making a major gift towards this goal please contact us for more information. We are pleased to offer official recognition to individuals, companies and institutions.


Together we can start something bigger
