President’s George Weah’s Legacy to the World

WFYA is an African initiative and its headquarters of operation are located in Cote D’Ivoire. The Marine Foundation helps establish PR Projects on the basis of the system of full sponsorship via brands & VIP networks. By 2019, WFYA initializes a concept (system) to distribute sports equipment to up to 5000 communities a year starting with Africa. Other distribution of equipment will consist of tools like fishing boats to help establish maritime centers around the coast of Africa. 

President of the Republic of Liberia, Mr. George Weah is one of the greatest football players the world has seen, since Pele. The Marine Foundation is proud to present President Weah as the Grand Patron of the World Football Youth Association thanks to his formidable athletes legacy of representing the motherland Africa and the beautiful nation of Liberia. WFYA will be the distribution of sports equipment to thousands of communities across Africa and the world. It promotes the concept of “Sports for Peace & Development”, through systems that promotes International annual sporting events for the youth and children of physical challenges.

An Unconditional Service to our Youth

General Concept of the World Football Youth Association (WYFA)

WFYA (Marine Foundation’s Sports Section) Africa is a Liberia headquartered international network hub connecting all Youth Sports Talents globally focusing on discovering and empowering sports talents from the African continent. This institution will offer educational and technical programs through the educative Centers all over the African Regions.

In addition, WFYA will enhance global economic transformation and the systematic creation of peaceful and sustainable good relations between communities by means of Education and Celebration. Our goal is to use sport as a tool for development, whereby sports talents will learn valuable life skills through entertainment activities. The program itself is vast and includes various sporting codes, for both genders.

Despite being persistently tipped as the coming force, with a plethora of sports talents bursting from the ‘Land of Opportunity’, many of whom play their trade at top European clubs, it has been argued that success in African football talents seems to be distributed erratically with very little impact on the grassroots. That is why and where WYFA helps correct that shortfall.

We strongly believe sport is that as much as sport is a great activity for health improvement, it is a great tool for community building as well. Football is an increasingly popular sport in Africa especially among the youths, therefore, WFYA is born for discovering, exploring and branding developments. It will also be creating a positive image as an incentive for pioneers of good concepts, investors, and innovators, to help find improvement solutions to the conditions of football talents on the African continent with environmental and economic development.

Working in the heart of sports talents in local community and villages in Africa through sports education, events organization, and high-tech communications tools will considerably enhance their operational platform and improve community lives greatly.

The flagship branding of this organization would be tall ships in the image of the Royal Clipper, making an entire fleet of some of the most beautiful naval disposal ever presented in our modern age. No matter how and great technology goes, nothing beats the beauty of sails over the ocean and nothing compares to the beautiful rewarding and lasting bounty sports education offers to the human spirit and the body’s health.

 EDUTAINMENT

When it comes to sports, Africa is a force to reckon with. In recent decades, African sports talents have exhibited to the world very high skills in many sports disciplines. And it is a right initiative that WFYA’s Marine Foundation Peace Cup be held in different regions and locations in Africa to promote and sustain the Sports talents in the African society.

The activities of the program will be training, coaching, and creating exposure for the talented youths in Africa. The purpose of the program is to nurture talent, create opportunities for youths with great football talents and build role models.

WFYA will also be focusing on providing short and practical sports-related courses such as sports management, leadership and communication and technical training to coaches, team leaders, school teachers, referees etc. The purpose will be to create sports professionals and strengthen sports organizations in all the regions of Africa. The program will try to attract foreign interns to benefit from exchange experiences rather than most African athletes going abroad to better exploit their skills and talents.

INFRASTRUCTURAL FACILITIES mostly needed:

Football Stadium fully equipped with ultra modern facilities accordingly with FIFA Standards including track and field, communication gadgets and lighting, media house, balls, training kits, jerseys, socks, shin guards, goal bars of different sizes, gym equipment, players football shoes of various sizes and colors.

This Stadium will also generate revenue as it will attract other groups of Sports talents from other continents and through payments from other users of the stadium from other continents. It has been the core mandate of Marine Foundation Sports Section Department to support all these sports talents from the grassroots by providing all these sporting facilities to enable showcase their talents on the global platform.

HEALTHCARE / WELFARE

Also, the healthcare and welfare of all these sports talents are to be considered immensely as prime factor including their insurance. The insurance will carry over to protect players and coaches during an incident during the field of play.

This will also foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of African sports youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition. Our job is also to make it fun and inculcate young players a lifelong passion for the football.

EVENTS / TOUR / TOURNAMENTS

International exposure and expertise are made available to athletes at least four to five times yearly depending on the tournament competitions as a form of Active Leisure Industry.

Those talents who excelled in school, sports and other fields will be given scholarships to attend prestigious colleges abroad for international exposure and expertise. Other incentives to travel outside Africa are also available. Improved and highly experienced, the returning recipient would be very beneficial to the country and to the world at large.

The MARINE FOUNDATION PEACE CUP is to be held annually. The even will become a center of attraction.

The diversity of Sports activities such as football creates and promotes Sports education and fundamentals through entertainment and tourism. It provides a healthy activity through its recreational and sided game programs. These programs emphasize fun and de-emphasize the “winning at all costs” mentality. Every single one of the sports talents is guaranteed playing time, and the game is taught in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Tournaments and competitions give athletes the platform to showcase their skills and talents to the world. Because constant training without competition kills the motivation of the athletes.

SPONSORSHIP of WFYA

Sponsorships of tournaments and competitions are also vital for WFYA as this aims at bringing individuals like Ronaldo, Messi, David Beckham etc and public-private partnerships (PPPs) for infrastructure development in various economic sectors. If there is a sector that really needs to drive PPPs, it is sport under the umbrella of WFYA.

WFYA aims at capitalizing on the global popularity of football talents and the rising interest in African talent to combine football with business for the benefit of communities. Our innovative model will use business principles and skills to develop income-generating programs which can produce capital for education and healthcare throughout our areas of work.

WFYA will better communicate and be more closely involved with the leagues and participate in upcoming tournaments in which every talent youth will be wearing jerseys with engraved Marine Foundations banner/logo anywhere they want to play matches, leagues, and tournaments.

It is very rewarding to keep our sports talented youths involved in positive character-building activities and discipline as this great initiative from Marine Foundation.

Sports has the power to change the world, the power to educate/inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else can, thereby bringing about peaceful society with entertainment and fun inclusive.

Every child born on the planet deserve its rightful birthright of education and care. This is not something anyone could argue with, and imagine if God came down to earth, what would His first question be? Probably -” How are the children doing?”- Our responsibility to children is not something we choose to do but rather is the uncompromising duty to the next generation.

Production & Branding Strategies

For reason of logistics complex planning and before the official launch of the program, it has been decided to keep planning strategies in the perspective of discretion in which context where WFYA will be associated with hundreds of brands and football celebrities. WFYA has taken the approach to use its services to also PR the economic development of regions and bring educational institutions in the process. 

There is also a process through which the equipment distributed to communities and paid by numerous sponsors yearly, to be fabricated in African commercial regions that would promote in the process the African textile & accessory industries.  Plans of cooperation with Japanese manufacturing engineers will also help promote technical knowledge to rural communities of any nations. WFYA is, therefore, a sustainable project of development for the betterment of economies which permanent program will become a source of income to many.
