SAMDA is unrelenting in its quest to impact the lives of African youths positively through sports.
The CEO and founder of the non-profit organization, Tony Kona Fele, reaffirmed this on Thursday while expressing satisfaction with the ongoing football tournaments in Cameroon featuring male and female students from secondary schools across the country.
The tournaments, which have entered the final stages, started on March 18 at Field Up Station Bamenda, the North West Regional Capital of Cameroon, as the Central African country blazes the trail for other African countries, notably Ghana, Liberia, Cote d’Ivoire, and Nigeria, which are looking to set out shortly after setting up an office in the country.
Reflecting on the progress made by the Cameroon team, Fele reiterated the essence of the programme, showering the team with praise and urging other African countries to kick-start without delay.
He said, “SAMDA continues the process in Cameroon as we move forward and are all learning as we make progress.
“The process is hard, but I am sure we will succeed in the end.” Our message through the youths of Africa will touch hearts.
“Wishing you all well and preparing for the road ahead in your respective countries.
“Kudos to Oliver, Zogo, and the rest of the team members in Cameroon.”
The sport programme is aimed at selecting African teams, with outstanding players (male and female) helped into universities across America on scholarship by SAMDA.
