Achievements

2009 Founded the Refugee6founadation;

  • The Netherlands registered non-profit organization aim of giving local kids a platform where they can get an understanding of refugee children and vice versa — they interact naturally on the field. The idea behind the Refugee VI football team is not for refugee children to isolate themselves; it should be more like a mixed team where many of the players are refugees.
  • The other main reason for starting the organization is that most of the refugee children, like myself then, were unaccompanied child immigrants, and we didn’t have any activities to do.
  • When you’re a refugee child you go through all these hardships — you can be led to believe that something isn’t possible. So that mentality is exactly what we’re working to get rid of, and it’s working.
  • We have about 25 players in the Refugee VI team at the moment. Most of the guys are under 19, so lots of young guys. The players tend to be mostly from Congo, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Angola and Burundi — that’s the meaning of the six in Refugee VI. So we have the six nationalities and we try to integrate the team with the locals as well (www.refugee6foundation.org)
