Felicite is the new Commissioner for Women's Football

Some exciting news from AKWOF and Felicite…

We have struggled to be integrated into our Rwandan football federation since the year 1999 and were always pushed back. Recently, we requested the executive committee of the Rwandan Federation to review our request, and we debated a lot and at last it was agreed to create a Commissioner for Women’s Football in the federation which was approved by FiFA. There were elections for the Presidency of the Commission. People presented their candidature and I did the same. I was given a chance to talk about myself and what I did for the women football. The general assembly of 84 people voted and I got 83 votes! I am the President of Women Football Commissioner, approved by the general assembly of the federation .This is a great achievement, I longed for this for many years, so if all goes well and we receive the funds I will use the conference to launch also the Women Football Commissioner in the Rwandan Football Federation.
