    • providing skill development through expert coaching 

    • work with the official organizations to help them organize leagues 

  • Use lacrosse to develop educational opportunities for players

  • Assist emerging countries to become members of the African Association of Lacrosse/World Lacrosse

The mission of the Ouallo Kouya Foundation 501(c)(3) is to provide educational opportunities for the youth of the Ivory Coast.  It is a comprehensive approach to provide for the children’s foundational needs, so that they can have an environment where they can learn.  We are working towards building schools that have a well to provide fresh water, a cafeteria so they can have more than one meal a day, bathrooms, library, small medical center, playground/field for activities and as lacrosse enthusiasts ourselves, we have chosen lacrosse as the sport to inspire and unite the communities.
