We ended the year on a high note with the first edition of the Francophonie Cup, a soccer tournament organized by the FACE foundation, FFF Academy New York and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) with the support of the Wallonie Bruxelles Delegation in New York, the Quebec delegation, the Credit Agricole and TV5 Monde. It was held on Saturday, June 26, 2021, with more than 18 teams composed of UN personnel and supporters of the program, representing more than twenty countries.

The Francophonie  Cup kicked off a fundraising campaign for the FHLP and was opened by the representative of the Permanent Mission of Ivory Coast, current President of the Group of Francophone Ambassadors (GAF) to the United Nations in New York. Ivory Coast won the first edition after a friendly but intense competition we hope to repeat every year.

The Francophone Cup also benefited from the support of Cameroonian international footballer Samuel Eto’o, who delivered a video message and  invited all the participants to support our program.

We are so grateful for his involvement!
