Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am very happy to receive you today at the headquarters of Children of Africa Foundation, for the launching of the 2015 edition of the Foundation’s Football Tournament, endowed with the “Dominique Ouattara Cup” in favor of the children of Côte d’Ivoire.

Dear Guests,

I would first like to thank Mrs. Nialé Kaba, Minister to the Prime Minister in charge of Economy and Finance for her presence at the launching ceremony.

I would also welcome the presence this afternoon, the Minister of Sport and Recreation, Mr. Albert François Amichia, and the Minister Delegate to the President of the Republic, in charge of the Youth Promotion and Youth Employment, Mr. Sidi Touré. I want to congratulate you gentlemen for the work you do for the Promotion of Sport and Youth in Côte d’Ivoire.

I also welcome the presence at our side of my younger brother, Mr. Minister Alain Lobognon, Mayor of Fresco. Thank you Dear Alain for your presence. I also welcome the presence of Mr. Meité Sindou Secretary for National Capacity Building.

They have freed themselves to be with us this afternoon. I would like to thank them sincerely for that.

I also want to commend the presence of the thirteen (13) Mayors of the District of Abidjan and their representatives and those of the beneficiary cities and towns of this tournament, but also the elected officials and business executives, who have come in great numbers to this event for the promotion of our youth.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

During the school year, the actions taken by Children of Africa Foundation, extend mainly to the areas of education, health and social assistance. In this time of school holidays, it was essential for us to extend these actions to the promotion of more playful and fun activities for our children.

The Soccer Tournament of Children of Africa Foundation, has been initiated for this purpose in the Commune of Abobo, a few years ago in order to keep healthily busy our children during the holidays.

This initiative has subsequently been extended to two (2) other municipalities in the District of Abidjan and sixteen (16) towns in the interior of the country. For this 2015 edition, I am pleased to announce that the tournament will be extended to fifty (50) localities across Côte d’Ivoire.

The Soccer Tournament of Children of Africa Foundation endowed with the “Dominique OUATTARA Cup” is organized for the benefit of school children from 07 to 15 years old of the participating municipalities.

Dear Guests,

Is it necessary to remind this? Football is a national sport that gathers and brings together in neighborhoods, towns and cities throughout the country.

Football is also, in this case, an educational activity that conveys important social values ​​such as team spirit, discipline, respect for others, and fair play. That’s the reason why Children of Africa Foundation has decided to support our children in regular sport practice for a healthier and more balanced life.

The tournament will start on the official launching date, to finish before the start of the next school year. I want the party to be nice, and that our children take the opportunity to relax and have fun. Perhaps we will have the revelation of a next “Didier Drogba” or “Yaya Touré”?

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I know I can count on the dynamism and commitment of everyone to make this 8th Soccer Tournament of Children of Africa Foundation, a success.

With kind regards and best wishes for summer holidays and a good football tournament to children of all localities.


Thank you!
