Since the 2016/2017 season, OGC Nice has supported ADAM (Aide aux Devoirs Animations des Moulins), a very important organisation in the Les Moulins neighbourhood of Nice which carries out a number of initiatives to help children and adults, and improve the area's dynamics and social cohesion
Having grown up in the area, Malang Sarr was ambassador of the association. "It's my duty to give back a little bit of what these people gave to me, to represent my neighbourhood and to commit myself to my city," the club youth academy product said.
Since then, the Club's commitment to ADAM has continued. The School of Football and the Educational Accompaniment Department promote the importance of education and sport to youngsters in the area.
The youngsters are also given regular invitations to first-team training sessions and games at the Allianz Riviera.
