Sadio Mane, the Senegalese striker who plays for Liverpool Football Club has returned to his hometown- Bambali, Senegal to lift members of his family and community from poverty to wealth after having a successful career abroad.
Sadio Mane, one of the world’s best footballers, rose to prominence with the help of his community and has since taken it upon himself to support them through philanthropy and sponsorships.
Despite being a celebrity, the 30-year-old footballer has maintained contact with members of his community, which numbers around 2,000 people. Many people describe his attitude as exceptional, noting that most celebrities do not return to their roots once they have achieved success.
Sadio Mane recently made a gesture by playing in a local game alongside El Hadji Diouf and Papiss Cisse. He has given a large sum of money to help his community thrive, including £500,000 for a new hospital.
He gave almost £200,000 in April 2018 to provide a new secondary school for the next generation of Bambali children, giving them the opportunity to succeed in life.
Unlike many others, Sadio Mane has always maintained that he is supporting his community for the sake of his community, not for the sake of fame. When The Telegraph asked him about creating a school for the younger generation, he asked that the matter be taken out of the interview, saying, “I don’t not do this for publicity.”
Sadio Mane paid a visit to the £455,000 hospital he funded last year, which serves 34 villages in the surrounding area, during his most recent visit to his hometown.
He also dedicated a new gasoline station in his neighborhood and has already committed funding to the construction of a post office for the communities.
A monthly €70 support package was granted to a family in the village, and €400 was offered to the top-performing students at Bambali High School.
He has provided the school with crucial technology resources such as laptops, free sportswear, and the installation of a 4G internet connection that will benefit the entire town.
