Coaching for Hope Delivers Course in Sierra Leone

Coaching for Hope Burkina Faso travelled to Freetown, Sierra Leone to train football coaches in the conflict-affected region.

April 2009 saw a team from Coaching for Hope Burkina Faso travel to Freetown, Sierra Leone to join the Right to Dream Academy to help train the first batch of coaches involved in an exciting and ground breaking footballing initiative underway in the recently war-torn region.

The Craig Bellamy Foundation (CBF) uses the power of football to mobilise large numbers of Sierra Leonean youth in order to help the development of their communities, their countries and most importantly themselves. 

In order for CBF to put the first phase of their ambitious youth league into place, Coaching for Hope was invited to design and implement a bespoke training course in low resource youth football coaching for 38 recently hired football coaches.
