On Saturday 14th June at Castle Green sport complex in Degenham – Essex our Team Rwanda UK took part in “Love Football Hate Racism” campaign organised by FBB_SOAS the student-led branch of Football Beyond Borders. The initiative is aiming to bring communities together through Football and create awareness on the issue of racism in football and in society at large. For more information on “Love Football Hate Racism” please read more on the following linkhttp://www.footballbeyondborders.org/#!FBB_SOAS-announce-2014-UK-Tour-/c20ry/hv3e6bj41
After the game to promote “Love Football Hate Racism” initiative Team Rwanda UK members headed to Barking Football Club stadium where The Ethiopian Airlines 2014 African Nations Cup UK final between Sierra Leone and Nigeria was taking place. Our boys and girls watched on as Sierra Leone became champion of 2014 African Nations Cup UK by beating Nigeria 1 nil! The Sierra Leone achievements is very significant for us at Football for Hope Peace and Unity (FHPU Enterprise) and Team Rwanda UK because our shared unpleasant tragic history and that’s why we would like to congratulate them for becoming champion but also by inspiring us “Team Rwanda UK” to aim high and believing nothing is impossible. Well done Sierra Leone team!
