• Girl Power in Kigoma, Tanzania

    Original Post: 9/19/2009

    Our coaches finished another great program in Kigoma, Tanzania and the results were outstanding.

    We worked with more than 100 teachers and coaches during our 15 day intensive Hat-trick Initiative program.

    Girl Power 2We worked with more than 250 children, boys and girls.

    We developed a ‘Pitch a Pitch’ business proposal with Accenture Consulting for the Kigoma District to raise funds to build a new Soccer for Social Development training area.

    We visited a Burundi refugee camp to discuss work in 2010.

    We filmed our first ever promotional documentary.

    ……………….and we established the first ever Girl Power program for young women in Kigoma.

    “Our work in Kigoma continues to lead the way for our business model.  Nico and Masari are two leading lights in education through sport and their work and enthusiasm allows our coaches to develop new ideas and innovative games.  It will be the final year in 2010 of the Hat-Trick Initiative in Kigoma and we hope to add 4 extra weeks to work with the teacher training college in Kasulu and to develop the on-line program for continued sustainability”  Christian Aviza, Coaches across Continents Business Advisory Board.
