2015 Super Cup to Develop Young Leaders
A life-changing experience for youth soccer players & coaches from 5 communities in Cameroon, Africa
Thanks to the generous donations from our supporters, we raised $10,000 in 30 days (July-August 2015) to support this Super Cup, laying the foundation for a sustainable initiative in each of the 5 communities with boys’ and girls’ soccer leagues on the horizon thanks to our efforts today.

From August 6-8th, CameroonFDP created a life-changing experience for coaches and players with our First Annual Super Cup, an epic event to bring coaches and players, six teams total, from five different communities across Cameroon, Africa together for a weekend of soccer and leadership workshops.
As part of the experience, each team returned home to complete community service activities, creating an opportunity for youth to showcase their leadership skills within their soccer club and benefit hundreds of members of their village, town, or city. Read the full story on our blog.
