Help comes to Africa!!!


The world of sport is currently experiencing a real “Fencing Revolution”.
The number of fencers and clubs throughout the world is on a continual growth path, as well as the national fencing federations affiliated to International Fencing Federation (FIE.) More and more athletes and teams from non-traditional fencing countries are excelling and achieving medals at World Championships and Olympic Games. The involvement in Africa is still low compared to the rest of the fencing fraternity in the world. Despite the tremendous efforts of the FIE, the development of fencing in Africa is still a major challenge.


In 2005, Alisher Usmanov, a former fencer and a world-renowned businessman, established an international charitable foundation, “For the Future of Fencing,” aimed to assist a tremendously beautiful and exciting sport “fencing” in Africa. The sole purpose of this organization is not only to assist federations, clubs, athletes, but also financing. This will allow the development of projects, equipment procurement, support of scientific researches, and the newest technologies in the refereeing process and competitions.

Dear friends, International charitable foundation, “For the Future of Fencing,” invites all interested organizations, clubs, and private individuals to participate in assisting us in make fencing flourish. We will be grateful to anyone and everyone to assist us with any suggestions, proposals, ideas, or projects that you might have.

Any feedback or contributions in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Kind regards,
