The Nkamanyi Football Initiative is a Football Training Center (Academy) in the Cameroonian city of Kumba. Its goal is to support the youths of the city and its environs to learn and develop their skills in the game of football and be good future leaders. At the NFI, we Empowering Kids Through Football. The Initiative was created in December 2013 in Kumba by the Nkamanyi family in Germany, USA and Cameroon with the goal of supporting children in their birth city Kumba, Cameroon to learn and develop their skills in the game of football. It is now a legally registered Football Academy with affiliation at the FECAFOOT and hence FIFA.
Realizing that a lot of kids may miss the chance of becoming talented players because they lack the opportunity to train with the right tools and attire, we thought we could try in our own way to provide the opportunity. Our sons, Teddy and Tyler, are the source of inspiration and driving force of this initiative. We would like the children in Kumba to be offered a chance of the opportunity they have in Germany.
The game of football has developed nations and enriched individuals. It has become a profession and many people long for it. Football has become a force of peace, unity and development. Nations all over the world have become united behind football, bridging the racial, tribal and religious divide. Our kids have not got the adequate opportunity where they can improve their football talents. There is a need for a football centre where the children can develop their skills. NFI fosters the empowerment of our kids in training and skill development.
The NFI is a football centre which aims at skillfully guiding the kids of Kumba and its environs towards a national and international football career.
