Ivory Coast Orphan Children Home

Hello to All, My name is John Pasqua and through chance, faith or destiny I connected, via a well known social network for professions, to a special person called Edmond Kouakou Konan and his soccer football team of orphan children in the major city of Abidjan, Ivory Coast,  a mainly french speaking country in west Africa. With consent from Edmond I have outlined the main extracts and photo's of our correspondence from the last months, that is, starting from the first day of contact 2 feb. 2018. The below correspondence outlines the strength, tenacity, courage, determination and love of Edmond and the children to improve their lives.  We would really appreciate a few minutes of your time to read the below, view the photo's and "THE STORY OF OUR FOOTBALL CLUB" by Edmond Konan, sent to me on the 10 may as it provides a clear understanding of their challenges. I am sometimes feel a little embarassed on their praisings towards me because in reality they are the heroes! The below extracts of correspondence, we hope, will help further explain the "Ivory Coast Orphan Children Dream" project for these children, that is, to play soccer football games in Europe against children of their own age, during a one week visit, and on Green Grass grounds. Oh by the way, until today, I have never personally met Edmond nor the children, although through the limited correspondence and photo's we have all become good friends. I would like to fill you all in on the last few months of message correspondence with Edmond. Due to many force majeur circumstances like heavy rains the place where the orphaned children stay is in terrible condition so together with Edmond we have decided to modify the project so that the funds received go into building a decent home to accomodate the children. 2 feb Edmond Konan 22:58 Hello big brother How are you?? 9 feb Edmond Konan 15:22 big brother I train children in ivory coast but we miss balloon we can help us 12 feb John Pasqua 17:52 Konan, how many soccer balls do you need?

I will name the project "Ivory Coast Orphan Children Dream" and include you in the team. The objective would be to get enough money funded to have you and the orphan children football team (approx. 19 boys plus you) to make a one week approx trip to Europe approx August next year 2019 to play with some boys football teams on green grass football fields. To try to make this complex project work, would it be okay if I use all the correspondence and photos we sent to each other in LinkedIn and publish them in the gofundme project? Another question I have is that do you see issues on getting the necessary paperwork, passports, visas ecc for you and the boys to travel to Europe. Would the Ivory Coast federation help with this? So many things but I would love to see this dream happen for the boys. I will do my best and I pray to God also fo some help. Take care from big brother John Edmond Konan 14:00 yes big brother a great joy for us to know the green turf. big brother we could make passports and yes our federation for us help us for licenses.
