The African Youth Development Foundation, on behalf of Team Nigeria (UK) International through Honourable Remy Chukwunyere donates 20 pairs of brand new Nike Air football boots to House of Angels Foundation in support of its sports development program in the rural areas of Imo state.
Presenting the gifts, Hon. Remy Chukwunyere said he started exploring job creation opportunities in the sporting sector because of the mandate given to him by the government to reduce unemployment among youths in the state.
According to him, the football sub-sector alone can employ millions of Imo youths when properly explored.
He used the opportunity to appreciate the Chief of Staff, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu for his usual support towards youth empowerment initiatives and congratulated David Doherty, CEO of Team Nigeria UK for this blossoming partnership with Imo state government.
Remy Chukwunyere thereafter urged Imo footballers in the U17 and U21 categories to prepare for the forthcoming open football trials, sometime in April, 2018 under the watch of UK based FIFA licensed scouts.
The CEO of House of Angels Foundation, Gertrude Oguatuegwu represented by one of her directors, Timothy was amazed at the gesture, which he said will really boost the morale of their boys, who do not have quality boots to play with, Naija Online TV gathered.
