Honey Thaljieh of the Federation of Association Football (FIFA) Visits TSF!

Another first for The Sanneh Foundation, a site visit from Honey Thaljieh of FIFA and the FIFA Football for Hope program turned a beautiful day into a historic day for TSF!

Honey Thalijeh is internationally known as an advocate for the role of sports in empowering women and girls. Following her career in football, she joined FIFA, the International Federation of Association Football, where she leads its effort to promote diversity, gender equality, integration, and peace-making in sports. She has been recognized as a Champion for Peace by the organization Peace and Sport.

The Sanneh Foundation is very grateful to be one of only three organizations in the United States to be an official FIFA Football for Hope supported organization.

Thank you Honey, FIFA and the Football for Hope program for supporting football's ability to unite our community and empower young people from Conway Community Center to Cite Soleil.
