About Us

American Football Without Barriers (AFWB) is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to use sports as a tool to help disadvantaged children live healthy and fit lifestyles through the core values of physical fitness, wellness, and education. Founded by retired NFL players Gary Barnidge and Breno Giacomini, and corporate executive Ahmed Awadallah, AFWB offers free football camps and clinics, leadership development and mentoring to men, women and children around the world. AFWB’s efforts are not limited to the gridiron. While the contingent is in each country that AFWB visits, the players and staff also do community visits and humanitarian work.
