Seventy New CLC Graduates in Gaborone, Botswana


Seventy New CLC Graduates in Gaborone, Botswana

19 June 2017

TAFISA and the International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) are proud to have partnered to organise a first Certified Leadership Course in Gaborone, Botswana (13 – 16 June 2017). Over 4 days, some 70 participants were specifically trained on the topic of volunteerism and Sport for All. They will form an important pool of volunteers for the delivery of Sport for All opportunities locally, and for upcoming events in Botswana, such as the Netball Youth World Coup (8 – 16 July 2017), World Baseball Softball Confederation Congress (October 2017) and 7th IWG World Conference (17 – 20 May 2018).

TAFISA thanks IWG for hosting of the course, the Foundation for Sport and Development and Peace for delegating 2 facilitators to lead the course along with TAFISA representatives, and the various local lecturers that provided their insight, such as the Botswanan Sports Volunteer Movement and Brand Botswana. A next CLC is planned to be organised in Botswana in conjunction with the 7th IWG World Conference next year.

This TAFISA visit in Botswana was also the opportunity for TAFISA representatives and the Botswana National Sport Council (a TAFISA National Member) to strengthen their relationship. A one-day workshop was organised to support the development of a Botswanan National Traditional Sports and Games strategy on June 16th, 2017.
