The NFA’s Galz & Goals initative in partnership with UNICEF and SCORE (Sports Coaches Outreach) visited Gobabis last week and successfully trained and inspired 34 community coaches and teachers to make a difference and empower the young girls of their community.
On Saturday 9th October, coaches, teachers, youth volunteers and girls aged 9-15 turned up at Ben Van Der Walt Primary School to participate in an initiative that provides adolescent girls of Gobabis the opportunity to participate in football and make positive social change within their community.
