Kano Skate Soccer team project

The Kano Polio Victims Trust Association of Kano, Nigeria supports two soccer teams made up of polio survivors.  The Polio Survivors RAG purchased soccer uniforms for these teams in 2008.  These were the first uniforms ever owned by team members.  The joy and pride is evident in the photos shown.  They are a remarkable group of young men who have not allowed their disabilities to reduce their ability to have fun.  And they play an amazing game of soccer.

Just added:  here is a video of the teams playing.
