The relation between Ochen and A.E. Ramassà was born during the trip that the club held in Uganda in April 2016. The Ugandan, captivated by the social and educational work that the club have been doing on the African continent since 2014, wanted to recognize the work done by naming the club as ambassador of objective 16 of the United Nations SDG. Later, in the year 2018, the A.E. Ramassà signed a new collaboration agreement with AYINET and since then acts as a global ambassador for SDG.
Victor Ochen is one of the main activists of the African continent. After a childhood marked by the war in Uganda, in 2005 he founded the NNGO African Youth Initiative network with the aim of providing physical, psychosocial and rehabilitation assistance to all victims of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), especially child soldiers. 15 years later, Ochen continues to work so that today’s youth become agents of peace.
In order to commemorate this exclusive honour, the club designed a special apparel only worn in events planned together with the UN and during which the club plays the role of its Ambassador. This outfit moves away from the traditional red-and-yellow stripes t-shirt the team usually wears -identity sign of the cluband choses a plain dark blue were the main star is the United Nations symbol.
Several well-known sportspeople such as former centre-back and captain of FC Barcelona Carles Puyol, as well as ex-forwarders Carles Rexach and Julio Salinas, or even Málaga FC’s goalkeeper Carlos Kameni have wanted to support the solidary task our team is doing in Africa.
