INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH – SIERRA LEONE
ESSA HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THIERNO DIALLO, A SPORTS AND CONDITIONING COACH FROM QUEENS, NY, WHO IS A FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE STK SPORTS ACADEMY BASED IN SIERRA LEONE.
STK Sports Academy (STK) is a registered 501(C)3 non-profit organization. Their mission is to give the youth in Sierra Leone, who lack access to opportunities, all the tools they need to succeed. Through physical training, academics, mentor-ship and support, we’ll help them reach their full potential as the next generation of the country’s leaders. Their goal is to leave a lasting legacy of opportunity and wellness for these extremely low-income youth and their communities.
Steve Cuss, Head of AFC Bournemouth’s Community Trust, who kindly donated 50 Team Kits for the children, and ESSA FC Academy Thierno left last week to visit the Academy where classroom facilities and other facilities are underway.
Thierno commented “Excited to be going back to Sierra Leone where we’ll be officially launching STK Sports Academy’s athletic and academic program in Mountain Cut, Freetown! Thanks to AFC Bournemouth and ESSA for their partnership and support. Building our future one community at a time”
