SHORT FILM SPOTLIGHT:

AFRICAN SOCCER TRAFFICKING: A PERSONAL TALE

Malian Alassane Diakite is one of an estimated 20,000 African soccer players stranded in Europe, lured by men posing as agents who falsely promise tryouts and contracts with top clubs. He earns $270 a month as a soccer player, also works as a dishwasher and sends money back home. A very interesting issue to bring attention to.

Watch Alassane as he continues to work towards his dream of becoming an international soccer star.
