Pedro is a football coach who is passionate about youth activism and uses sports as a tool for social change. He has coached many youth teams, including Sierra Leonean giants Freetown City Council. Pedro’s commitment to youth development extends beyond the football field, as he actively engages with young people in Freetown to address critical issues like education, health, and social inequalities.
Ishmael, another respected coach, raises awareness about these issues by organizing workshops and initiatives that leverage the popularity of football to engage young people, fostering dialogue and encouraging community action. Pedro’s programs are empowering young people to become agents of change in their communities, promoting positive values like teamwork, leadership, and resilience.
Pedro’s story is an inspiration not only for aspiring footballers but also for anyone who believes in the power of sport to create positive social impact. As Ishmael Koroma says, “Football is more than just a game; it’s a tool we can use to build a better future for our youth.” By tackling social issues on and off the field, we can empower young people to be the change they want to see.
