While most footballers were taking a rest last month, Johan Djourou headed to Africa for a very special cause.
The Swiss defender is an Ambassador for the Kemi Malaika Foundation in Senegal, a project set up by Johan's agent to help give children a better education.
In part one of this free video feature, Johan talked about the Foundation and visited Goree Island - a place with harrowing memories for African people.
Part two sees Johan return to the Kalan School, the jewel in the crown of the Foundation. He also visits a football academy to meet aspiring young players in Senegal.Copyright 2016 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
