Wow, what a fun first day at Iridimi camp! This was my first time visiting this eastern Chad Darfuri refugee camp, and so far, I’m loving my experience. Everyone we’ve interacted with has been super friendly, the camp feels pretty spacious and clean, and it looks like our Refugees United Soccer Academy (Academy) will thrive here. My cheeks were hurting from laughing so much along with the coach candidates today!

This is Coach Souliman from camp Goz Amer sharing his thoughts on day one of Academy coach tryouts:
