Training of new Capitain in Primary Schools

These are the new captain  of schools that were attending the training of trainers course organized by AKWOS with the main objective of teaching them the role of sports for health and development .

It was a 5 day workshop with different lessons  such as children, rights, fight gender based violence, awareness in  the prevention of HIV and AIDS, Conflicts Resolution through sports.

In the workshop they were taught how they can become role models in using sports for social change. This training was opened officially by the Executive director  Mme Rwemarika Felicite and conducted by Nyinawumuntu Grace the National Women’s coach  who spoke  of her experience as role model and the rest were given by AKWOS coaches who are highly skilled in different topics mentioned

It was followed by the female teachers who were given training on the role of sports in promotion of gender rights ,Gender based Violence, unity and reconciliation and how to introduce many teams in schools and keep at least 30 minutes of giving different topics during the resting time and were asked to introduce a timetable for sports as it was realized that before they came for training they mentioned that they did not have time for sports.

AKWOS will do the monitoring and evaluation after 3 month, then organize competitions between the new teams with the funding from UNICEF and Right To Play .
