Inspiring quotes from the new DUSA Camp Kounoungou Coaches!

By Bridget Grant / March, 10, 2016

The four Darfur United Soccer Academy (DUSA) coaches for camp Kounoungou have been selected! The Kounoungou academy marks the fifth DUSA to open in refugee camps along the Chad-Sudan border. The program is now 20 coaches strong and provides up to 10,000 displaced boys and girls a safe space to play, move, heal and grow through the transformative power of sport.

Meet the newest coaches from camp Kounoungou:

Mohamat, 25
“Thank you to all the people that support the children of Darfur. Thank you for this opportunity. This is a wonderful program that brings us together not as men and women, but as one people.”
