Yesterday we had the pleasure of being in the company of Lolly Lola O, a lawyer turned soccer coach who helps women all over the world improve their lives through soccer.
Her progressive career in Football Development projects has taken her around the world from England to the US, Australia, Dubai, South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, India, and China.
She has successfully managed and implemented curriculum programs and coached Football sessions for semi-professional teams, junior academies, and collegiate and community teams.
She believes that Sports has so much power to transform lives.
She is the first-ever business manager for Burnley FC Women which is based in Lancashire, that currently competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English Football.
In her 3-day stay in South Africa, Youthzones hosted her and visited Bidvest Protea Coin (Gijima Training Academy), and 2 of our sites (Tembisa & Kameeldrift) including our office in Fountain Bleau Community Church.
As someone who leads by example and believes in investing in people, she hope to inspire, encourage, and support others around her to make a positive impact in the local and global community.
