The Star City Soccer Foundation (SCSF) was established with the goal of supporting refugees and immigrants in Roanoke with opportunities in education, leadership and assimilation. SCSF has seen a multitude of individual and operational successes in its seven years.

One of the ways that SCSF is working to accomplish this goal is through the Ndarugiriye Mariam Education Fund. It will be able to benefit all refugee students in Roanoke in helping them reach their long-term goals.

In two years of operation, the Fund has supported refugee education by paying thousands of dollars in expenses, including:

  • Tuition at Virginia Western Community College

  • Enrollment fees at Radford University

  • Books at Radford University

  • Partial tuition at Roanoke College

  • Books at Roanoke College

  • Tuition at West End Center

  • Cooking and nutrition classes at the Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op

  • Summer school classes through Roanoke City Public Schools


The Hope Soccer Festival is the main fundraiser for the Ndarugiriye Mariam Education Fund. In four years, approximately 1000 individuals have participated in male and female divisions ranging in age from U8 through 35+.  

The tournament is actively seeking  volunteers, sponsors and donors.
