Sierra Leone Amputee Soccer

I have two long term goals for my time in Niger. . .the first being a mobile therapy unit (bringing rehab to the bush). . .the second would be to start an amputee soccer team. What can I say, I dream big.

I could tell you all day about amputee sports, but it's more fun and interesting to watch. (It is to be noted that these video clips are not mine but posted directly from youtube.com.

Niger in the News

Not much new going on. Am in the process of applying for my French Visa in order to study there for my first year out. Anticipated departure is still mid to late August.
