Football is watched by millions of people worldwide. There is evidence of this love all over Qatar, particularly since Qatar holds the privilege of hosting the World Cup in 2022. As time progresses, people are developing a deeper understanding for football, and along with that an undeniable love for the sport.

The Being King Foundation was founded in 2014 with one student. That number has now risen rapidly to 116 students. The Being Kind Foundation (BKF) is a registered and well established, affiliated foundation in Qatar, dedicated to providing education facilities and development programs for children for underprivileged students, especially in the rural belt of Sri Lanka regardless of faith, race, gender or political beliefs.
