The Kidus Legacy Education and Soccer Foundation was established in remembrance of Kidus, to fulfill a life-long dream of identifying talented, underprivileged youth showing early potential in academics and soccer skills, and provide them with well-rounded quality education both in academics and soccer.
The Kidus Legacy Family Wellness was established by family and friends of Kidus, to prevent the youth of Ethiopian Heritage from falling victim of mental health. Build strong healthy relationships between parents and their children, eliminate cultural barriers, start dialogue based on understanding and mutual respect.
Help us create more opportunities for Ethiopia’s talented youth through education and athletics. Your contribution will assist children with the skills they need to continue Kidus’ legacy.
Each year, qualifying candidates ages 9 – 13 are selected from all over Ethiopia. Selection is income-based, evaluating their academic skill from their school report cards and soccer skill through try-out scouting camps by professional coaches.
