“A step at a time, as we make conscious effort to counter inaccurate stereotypes by replacing them with fact about our community and our people “

The 3rd ZONGO INTER-TRIBAL COMMUNITY FOOTBALL FIESTA believes every young person has the potential to do great things. Through sports, the youth are given tools to explore, learn, invent, and develop their innate talent under the theme: BUILDING A BETTER TOMORROW THROUGH SPORTS

Using sports and education as our instruments, the organization aims to identify and nurture talent in the youth from poverty-stricken homes; where young people are forced to drop out of school due to financial constraints, the consequences of which negatively expose such youth to crime, drug abuse and other social vices.

Majority of the families in NIMA have an average number of five children per household and are struggling to survive by doing odd jobs. All the family’s small income is basically for feeding (hand-to-mouth) whiles many of these households lack basic human needs and cannot afford the cost of educating their children and supporting them up to the level where they can sustain themselves.

Meanwhile the successful ones amongst the countless professional footballers who hail from our community are using football to shape their destinies and also set their communities and families alive on the path of prosperity and progress.
