Mission Statement

The Sanneh Foundation, a youth development organization, provides life skills programs for at-risk children using soccer as the catalyst to empower kids, improve lives and unite communities.

  • We empower kids by providing leadership-skill development and mentoring, along with access to a safe and healthy environment to learn and play.
  • We improve lives by supporting and promoting educational attainment through in-school and after-school programming, tutoring and college preparatory training.
  • We unite communities by advancing diversity, promoting community service, and fighting racism through individual training and institutional change

Description

Tony Sanneh, a St. Paul native and recently retired professional soccer player, founded the Sanneh Foundation in 2003 with a goal of helping inner city kids. After 15 years playing professional soccer - including playing for the U.S. in the 2002 World Cup - Tony moved back to St. Paul in 2009 to dedicate himself full-time to work of the Sanneh Foundation.
