[16/02/2021] - NFI donates Laptop to the Kumba Diocese to say Thank You

N Support is not a one-way street issue. By saying "Thank You", one supports the other.

We have been so happy with our relationship with the Diocese of Kumba as they always stood by us since our humble beginnings of our journey to empower kids through football. The use of their infrastructure and their extraordinary moral support, our actions in taking kids off the streets and providing them a possible perspective for the future have been something we all have come to appreciate and hold close to our hearts.

On this 16 day of February 2021, the president of the NFI, Mr. Nkamanyi Terence handed over a top-feature laptop to the Diocese through its chancellor. The chancellor was extremely happy about the gesture and said it comes timely and he will "immediately get to using it tomorrow".

As we said, this year is going to be our best.
