F&M Engage SA at The Chris Campbell Field and Education Center 

The Chris Campbell Field and Education Center is located in the Khayelitsha district of Cape Town, South Africa, was constructed as an education and sports focal point for this poverty-stricken township. F&M's connection to this area was was born out of the tragic passing of Chris Campbell, an F&M soccer star who passed away the day before his senior soccer season. As a result, the CTC Ten Foundation was formed by Chris's family and their close friends and team mates and F&M soccer coach Dan Wagner.

The Center's main objectives- provide a quality education and athletic facility where local children have an opportunity to be safe and flourish.  F&M Students have the opportunity to work with the facility through community based learning classes and the ONE Goal Program
