Borussia Dortmund and England starboy Jude Bellingham is proving that he’s not just making a difference on the pitch, after his – very lowkey – charity work has now seen him help complete building a school in Kenya.
Bellingham has been helping locals in the community in Mombasa, Kenya through the Mustard Seed Project, a charity supporting underprivileged children in Kenya.
After donating football kits through his sponsor, adidas, Bellingham has now built a new 275-pupil classroom for local children in the area.
In a previous interview with League Football Education, Bellingham said: “I saw a picture and it gave me a great feeling seeing how happy they were and knowing how much it will help them going forward.
“The more attention I get from doing good things on the pitch, hopefully that will crossover to the charity, so it’s definitely at the back of my mind as a driving factor for me to keep working hard and performing well so that the charity can benefit too.”
Jude has now helped raise enough money to make a life-changing difference to a very poor community, and helping providing children with education in Kenya.
