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:
“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.”
“Thank you to this team and this program 100 times over. I could never say thank you enough. I look forward to teaching the young boys and girls in my community that there is no difference between them. We are all equal. And one day, I hope there is a Darfur United Women’s team, too!”
