CFDP is an expanding, international non profit organization that provides opportunities to African youth from impoverished areas that suffer high rates of disease and poverty. We hold after school programs based on YES! (Youth Empowerment through Soccer) to provide youth with a supportive community, teach them soccer, and educate them about important health issues like HIV/AIDS as well as social issues. Our goal is to instill in them a sense of leadership and empowerment so that they have the tools to overcome the odds, become peer leaders, and instigate positive change.

Soccer is a fun and welcoming method to reach the youth of Cameroon! We use soccer programs as a platform to build community, empower women, teach about HIV, educate students on practical and transferable skills, and of course, have fun!
