WHO WE ARE

Georges Kapin Tame has been a sports instructor and football initiator for 11 years.

During his professional career, he has worked mainly with children and teenagers, notably in football clubs and in extra-curricular and community activities. Later, he was given the opportunity to work as a school accompanier for children with various disabilities. Among them? Deaf and hard-of-hearing children. Following this, Georges decided to study sign language. During his work, he noticed that a large number of children liked to play football but did not have a framework adapted to their needs. With this in mind and a passion for coaching young people in sport, he decided to found ÊKHÔ Sport. Its aim? To enable deaf children to unleash their full potential, have fun and boost their social dynamism by being offered the same opportunities as young people in a traditional sporting environment.

Elodie is a school doctor in the COCOF's School Health Promotion Department. She has always been passionate about children's health and well-being, and actively supports the ASBL as its secretary.

Geneviève has been in charge of administration for over 30 years. She was touched by the initiative and wanted to commit to supporting the project.

Estelle has been a brand representative for 4 years. Her interest in ÊKHÔ Sport stems from her love of children. She supports social development through sport and wants to do her bit.

James has been a freelance professional videographer for 3 years. Whether as a player, coach, delegate, referee or just a supporter, football is an essential part of his life. So it was only natural that he wanted to join the ASBL to pass on his experience to the younger generation.

As a teamWe share the same values and want to use sport to help give a voice to those who have none by enabling them to release their potential, develop their self-confidence and grow in their social relationships.
