SAMDA keeps waxing across the globe, with Saturday’s launch of its USA-based soccer program in Minnesota recording a landmark success.
The CEO of SAMDA, Tony Kona Fele, has against this backdrop expressed his delight at the massive and memorable event, which further accentuated the meteoric rise and spread of the non-profit organization that is focused on giving African youth a better life.
Basking in the euphoria of the success of the exercise in Minnesota, Fele urged all African teams to intensify their efforts in propagating the activities of the organization, thanking Zogo from Cameroon and Abe Nebo of Minnesota for their hard work to introduce SAMDA in their communities.
He stated: “I just want to report that we had a wonderful time in the state of 10,000 lakes, Minnesota.
“The young people in this state were motivated and embraced SAMDA’s idea of getting Africans on the table to create our own games in the state.
“There were several teams involved in the process. Our job in creating the direction to shoulder all Africans just started, and we will depend on all of you for your support.
“Let’s try to support the system so that in the end we will have a good conversation across Africa.
“I want to sincerely thank Zogo from Cameroon and Abe Nebo from Minnesota for their hard work to introduce SAMDA in their communities.
“Let’s find the paths for the youth of Africa together! The distance might seem long, but it is just beneath our feet!
Meanwhile, other African teams like Nigeria, Ghana, and Cote d’Ivoire look to kick-start their activities once SAMDA is fully birthed and given a face to be recognized by the public in those countries.
To this end, the Nigerian team met on Saturday, April 8, 2023, and unanimously resolved to put the office in place before embarking on the launch and various activities, all geared towards making a flying start and sustainable impacts.
