I have been following with profound interest the evolution and development of the Stanmore Jafferys Football Academy, SJFA, and cannot but correlate with and reminiscence the attempts of our forefathers back in Africa.
Pursuit of sports of any kind is highly recommended and helps develop a whole generation, inculcating in them the essence of a fraternity that cannot be described.
It brings about a social cohesion amongst a whole generation that holds the community together and instils a sense of pride and community belonging.
Winning or losing games and tournaments is ancillary to the other long term benefits of such activities.
On behalf of the KSIMC of London, I am dedicated to promoting these activities.
Needless to say, the accomplishments achieved so far would not have been possible without the selfless dedication of so many volunteers who have spearheaded this institution. To them, I say a very big thank you on behalf of all parents and the whole community.
I wish them well and success in all their endeavours.
With Salaams and Duas
KSIMC of London
