Cameroon Programs

Since 2010, Open Field has facilitated sport-based youth development programming for thousands of youth in the Southwest and Northwest Regions of Cameroon. Our dedicated team has trained and supported dozens of coach mentors and community leaders in best practices to create a team culture that promotes positive youth development. Highlights from over the years include life-changing travel experiences for hundreds of youth to play in regional competitions in Cameroon in 2015 and 2016 and internationally in Europe in 2018. 

In 2022, the Cameroon Team, under the jurisdiction of the Open Field Cameroon Association, took a more active role in the governance and leadership of operations and programming in country. In 2023, Open Field Cameroon was awarded a grant from the FIFA Foundation to support a peace-building initiative through sport. With support from Open Field U.S., the Cameroon team oversees programs in the Southwest Region and coordinates with other partners across the African continent through the Common Goal network.

Guinea Programming

Open Field and Chris Nedelcovych Soccer Foundation (CNSF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2020 to collaborate on programming in Guinea, West Africa. Mima Nedelcovych has been working in West Africa for more than 20 years and has built strong relationships with national and international stakeholders through his commitment to community development. With the support and guidance from a team of advisors, Open Field’s programming in Guinea aims to address UN Sustainable Development Goals No. 4 Education and No. 5 Gender Equity.
