THE STORY:

Hi , My names are Epah Gyvira.I am a Cameroonian by nationality and I am 42 years. I am football fanatic and this can be seen from my experience in the game of football. In Cameroon, i played for a good number of clubs and national tournaments. My football career in Cameroon has a lot of positive impact on my life. Due to my talent, I decided to travel to South Africa where I could show case my talent in the game of football. I played for many clubs in South Africa most remarkable is the ARCADIA SHEPARD'S F.C. We emerged Champions of the VODACOM League in 2003-2004. I also did coaching management because of the love that I had for soccer. My career in South Africa has a remarkable legacy in my life. While in South Africa, i traveled to Japan for a test match but unfortunately, I was questioned for failure to renew my passport. Consequently, I was sent to Cameroon. The story is really a sad one. All what I had worked for in South Africa perished. Back in Cameroon, i did not give up my passion for soccer. I joined a few soccer clubs but it was always difficult to make it to the top. My soccer career in the pitch diminished but i still have the passion for soccer. Because of my Charisma and Talent, i was appointed coach of the Little Foot F.C ,Tiko a Regional Division 2. My coaching career with this club was poor because it was very difficult to transform the barbaric and uncultured talent of these African Children. I decided to create a football academy which was initial dream at retirement . The name of the football academy is " Arcadia Shepard's Football Academy" Our Principles: To build character and self-esteem To foster respect To encourage healthy lifestyles that include physical activity and healthy eating To grow a sense of community The Academy is 7years today since it's creating. I have a total of 90 boys and 45 girls ages ranging from 5-19 years. I want to use this soccer academy to eradicate the high level of illiteracy and moral ills that has been plaguing my society before now. Through this mission, I will pass on Hope and a brighter future to the underprivileged. I am mailing you today is to beg on behalf of this young academy, my community which has no football club right now, and Cameroon in general to help us Soccer equipment.
