Collaboration is key to sustainable development in our work. Some months ago, I called my elder and tribal brother Usifu Jalloh from the Uk on phone to share with him what we are doing across Sierra Leone in using sports education.After we talked, we planned a zoom meeting to map out ways in which we can collaborate. In the meeting, we engage each other on the value of what we are doing.1: Was for us to dramatize our sport into storytelling about the importance of education and sport.2: For us to participate in his yearly drama and National Storytelling Festival.So I have been working with my team back home to see what we can put together and present to Usifu and team. With time not on our side, that did not go as planned.Useful is a Sierra Leone-born storyteller and the most traveled in telling stories and learning new cultures. He goes by the brand name CowFoot Prince. He is proud of Sierra Leone and has transformed a good number of children across Sierra Leone and the world through his work. He runs the National StoryTelling Festival every year in Sierra Leone which he founded. He also runs the Maambena Fest every year in Kamakuwie which is founded by him as well. He is a strong advocate on so many issues around the world. He is a member of the Lek U Culture Festival group. Yesterday evening, I found out that he is in Kono for the Lek U Culture Festival, and got in touch with him to see if he can make time to visit our kids and motivate them in what they are doing. He gave me his word and I communicated with my coordinator and coach Aiah Fanday Musa in Kono where we run a nonresidential football academy called Golden Soccer Academy. This morning, he made his way to the Koidu community playing field where he engage the kids and left a mark in their lives.Below is a picture video put together by our team of his visit. ...
