I leave Thursday afternoon for Ghana... if you want to follow then we have set up a blog for Photo's news etc. as we go... There will be a Lap top going (not mine) and we may find a Cyber Cafe or two... the Blog is HERE and there is an itinerary to download if you want to see where exactly we are each day.... I'm hoping to create a link between the schools sports programmes and AFC Telford FC( The Club, Supporters Trust and "Playing for Success"/Safespace... The folk in Ghana have come up with the following...
1. We will be exploring the possibility of initiating a football academy for the pupils and schools that are participating in the Link School programme. This will ensure that pupils interested sports will be able to fellowship among themselves across a multi-faith barrier.
2. We will be holding a fun game and sports forum for the School participating in the link programme. This include the School for the Deaf and the Blind. this will take place on Tuesday, October 28. Then on Wednesday, October 29 in the various schools, There will also be sports clinics for the schools during which I will try to share with them "the passion of sports and how sports can be used as bridges over various situations"!
3. In-between Tuesday and Wednesday (while the others are doing their school visits), we will be speaking with the Sports Coordinators of the Schools to explore the possibility of starting the Academy.
While in Cape Coast, we would also try to call on the Metropolitan Sports Organizers for Schools on issues that might be of interest and which would enhance the School-to-School link programme.
