TAFISA and the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) successfully organised the “Women Leadership through Sport for All : Training the next generation of Women Sport for All leaders in the Caribbean Workshop” with the support of the UNESCO Participation Programme. The training, held in St. Vincent on September 8-9, 2023 was attended by 17 participants from 12 Caribbean countries with a specific goal of empowering women.
The comprehensive training modules covered various topics, including the Global Sport for All Movement, gender-related issues in the Caribbean and globally, mentorship, project development, and event management. These sessions were expertly delivered by TAFISA Vice President Catherine Forde, CANOC President Keith Joseph, TAFISA Senior Manager Game Mothibi, and SVGNOC Officer Tyrone James.
As part of the workshop, the participants were tasked with developing a 12-month project to implement in their respective communities. These projects included physical activity programmes for children and seniors, research work, seminars, and educational programmes. The participants were also enrolled in a 12-month mentorship programme to develop their leadership skills and attitudes to continue serving the Sport for All movement in the Caribbean and globally.
The training has laid a strong foundation for Sport for All and Physical Activity in the Caribbean region, inspiring 17 young leaders to contribute to building a better world through Sport for All. We are confident that these young leaders will continue to serve as a catalyst for change in their communities and beyond.
Congratulations to the following leaders for their successful participation in the workshop, and all the best for the next steps!
