• Select Gear and Passback make a difference in Kigoma, Tanzania

    July 26th, 2010:  The Select Gear donation of uniforms has arrived at our partner program in Kigoma, Tanzania with the help of Passback and Eurosport who helped in the delivery of 6 boxes of uniforms.

    The Kigoma Program was our first Hat-Trick Initiative program.  Coach Nico in Kigoma contacted Coaches across Continents in 2008 and in July of that year we ran Year 1 of the program.

    The program helped Coaches across Continents win the prestigious Beyond Sport Global Award in 2009.

    “We would like to thank Select Gear, Passback and Eurosport for their wonderful donation to our program.  Our teachers are working hard in our schools using the Coaches across Continents curriculum.  During the presentation of the jerseys also we invite the TV journalist in order to advertise you organization to all Tanzania. You can see one of the picture I have got interview from STAR TV.”  Coach Nico

    In September, Coaches Brian and Tracy will be joining Coach Nico in Kigoma for the final year of our partnership, a successful partnership that will have trained more than 150 teachers to use soccer for social development.
