American Football Without Barriers

Co-founded by: Gary Barnidge, Breno Giacomini and Ahmed Awadallah

Welcome to our new official website for AFWB Camp (American Football Without Barriers).

AFWB Camp is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to develop American football in underprivileged countries around the world. We host yearly camps to support football clubs and leagues in other countries, while encouraging sportsmanship and physical activity.

Founded by Gary Barnidge and Breno Giacomini in 2011, the goal of AFWB Camp is to take professional NFL skills and abilities and bring that to new parts of the world to underprivileged kids, through service and leadership.

After the Superbowl in 2014, both athletes got together and called some friends to visit Brazil and spread the word of football there. Istanbul, Turkey became AFWB 3rd international destination after sucessful camp that saw 12 NFL athletes teach over 600 campers the sport of American Football.
