It was all fun and excitement on 19th of February at NASDEC in Lusaka because we had Martha Harris, Rosie White and Kate Longhurst from Liverpool F.C here to spend a morning with our Goal girls playing football and doing Goal sessions.
The event was graced by the Director of Sport in the Ministry of Sport and Youth Ms. Bessie Chelemu, Standard Chartered Bank Zambia Corporate Affairs Manager Ms. Christine Matambo, the General Secretary of the National Sports Council of Zambia, Col. Chitambo and the Director of NOWSPAR Ms. Matilda Mwaba.
When the speeches had been said, the rest of the time was spent doing Be Money Savvy Goal Games and practicing football skills and moves. The Goal girls at the event received football boots and jerseys for their continued football practice. The Goal girls are members of our implementing partner organisations, 20 girls are part of Life Skills Foundation in Garden Chilulu Compound, 10 girls were Goal graduates from New Mtendere School and we had 15 of our Goal Facilitators participating in the event.
The event started on a joyous note with some entertainment from the Goal girls and ended with everyone mutually inspired and energised to reach higher heights through Goal.
