Why I enjoy working with CAC? – “Traveling around Africa shows you the harsh realities of life but nothing in the world beats the sound of laughter to lift you up. Every CAC training I have attended has been filled with laughter, football, and smiles…nothing feels better than knowing you can make someone smile through a game of football. I love that I see smiles and hear laughter roaring during every coaching session of work!”
