In 2014 SATUC successfully hosted the first football tournament for orphans in Egypt and the Arab world with the participation 16 civil associations in 6 Egyptian governorates.

In 2015, however, SATUC is launching its most ambitious project yet, the 2015 SATUC World Cup led by SATUC founder Sheikha Al Thani. Taking place from 29th August – 3rd September, SATUC is hosting a 6-a-side football tournament in the Cairo Stadium Indoor Halls Complex with teams comprising orphans and disadvantaged children aged 14-15 from around the world. 

Via our partner charities we already have teams confirmed from Egypt, Syria, the UK, Colombia, Honduras, the Philippines, Algeria & Morocco (and more to be announced); the tournament is set to be truly global in scope. Already we have some of the biggest stars lending their names to the cause with Egyptian legends Hassan Shehata and Ahmed Hassan as SATUC’s Honorary President and the Honorary President of the 2015 SATUC World Cup respectively, while footballing legends from all around the world such as Nader El Sayed, Rabah Madjer, Aziz Bouderbala, Jorge Luis Pinto and Carlo Cudicini are just some of the many who have joined as tournament ambassadors.

SATUC’s longer term project is set for completion in 2020, when SATUC plans to open an Egyptian-British school for underprivileged children and orphans in Cairo. SATUC will provide sports & activities, first-rate education, food, accommodation and medical care for over 800 orphans.

This academy will be a cornerstone of SATUC’s long-term plan to bring hope and opportunity to thousands of poverty-stricken, neglected and disadvantaged children throughout the world. Construction is set to begin in late 2017.

SATUC is determined to prevent vulnerable children from ending up alone by supporting them through their most fragile stages of development. Whether a child is orphaned or abandoned, we will provide them with a permanent home and community safe from the hardships they would face on the street.

SATUC’s Projects


SATUC is a non-profit organisation founded by Sheikha Sheikha Al Thani and is a registered charity in Egypt (No. 9735) working to help orphans and underprivileged children.   

Our branch in the UK is a Limited Company (No. 08694198) awaiting charitable status.

From an early age Sheikha worked hard to support underprivileged children in countries such as Egypt, Sudan, the Philippines, the UK and other destinations throughout the world. Despite her youth, she has carried out many projects in her lifetime as she strongly believes it is important to give our attention as a global community to children who have suffered great deprivation in their young lives.

To smooth the path for these children, Sheikha is convinced of the need for education in combination with fighting the poverty that traps so many of these children; she has taken it upon herself to encourage governments around the world to look after these kinds of disadvantaged individuals as it is the governments who are in the strongest position to help achieve prosperity for their country and in doing so help build their nations.
