Leadership training for Sport Volunteers in Botswana.
The Foundation for Sport, Development and Peace, in partnership with TAFISA, offered a training Course in Botswana for 65 volunteers from 11 to 18 June 2017 in Gaborone. The host organizations were the Sport Volunteers Movement of Botswana as well as the International Working Group for Sport and Women that are planning their Congress to be held in May 2018. The Foundation facilitators included Dr Marion Keim (Chairperson of the Foundation) and Prof Christo De Coning. The training especially focussed on the knowledge and skills required to plan and manage sports events as Botswana will be hosting three international events in the next year. The Foundation also developed good relationships with the Ministry for Sport and Youth as well as the Botswana National Olympic Committee and specific discussions were held on the importance of Olympic value education. The IWG on Women and Sport will be hosting a special commission at this years’ upcoming Cape Town Sport and Peace Conference to be held in Cape Town on 13 September 2017.
