“On behalf of ProjectSTORY, we would like to thank VALEO FC for generously supporting our refugee youth organization. We are grateful to be part of the VALEO family, and we very much appreciate this opportunity to facilitate the personal development, growth, and overall success of our kids…We are so grateful.”
Soccer Makes a Difference in Kids Lives. The Valeo Foundation Supports Their Journey.
Valeo is proud to help these young athletes, and so many other talented and ambitious youth players, both locally and globally.
Through a partnership with elite academies in Kenya, who share a similar mission, Valeo is providing support to teams in Nairobi, Kisumu, and Rusinga Island.
To understand the impact of these partnerships, the Kisumu Academy currently has 19 players in the Kenya Premier League. One of their graduates now plays for Union Omaha of the USL. These collaborations provide an opportunity for hundreds of youth athletes to receive superior training and develop into talented players. They also provide pathways to US schools and academy clubs, as well as European academy clubs. Valeo players in our local community also benefit from this synergy with pathways to European opportunities.
“Thanks again for the support through Valeo. The kids and coaches were very excited to be donned in new uniforms and equipment.”
