Capacity development in event management is critical to the work that sport for social change organisations do as events are at the core of their delivery strategies. Events are a powerful platform to engage participants, to engage partners and funders as well as the media.’ Lombe Mwambwa-  SSCN Southern Africa Board Chairperson

Chair of the Zambian Chapter of the SSCN Ms. Mara Michelo highlighted the importance of this training saying ‘the sport for social change organisations in Zambia are key to the development and functioning of community sport in Zambia. They are also involved with national sport events, therefore skills development in this areas helps Zambia to be ready to host events of varying magnitude including the Zone VI Games in December and other sports events in future.’

One of the participants Mr. Listen Tembo from Mulalika Sports Club in Chongwe said ‘the workshop is useful to developing management skills and will help improve the sports programs we are running.

World Water Day: Sport Plays its Part

Sport for Social Change Organisations BreakthroughChiparamba Academy and EduSport Foundation are taking the lead in mobilising the sport community to address awareness on water and sanitation in line with the MDGs.

In commemoration of World Water Day, Breakthrough and Edusport  hosted a community sport festival ‘Zambia-germany-Japan World Water Day friendship tournament’ to raise awareness and to advocate for development of infrastructure and systems to enhance supply and management of water in disadvantaged communities.

Over the last few years, the two organisations in partnership with Youth Development through Football (YDF) under German International Cooperation (GIZ)  have been implementing a community awareness program on water and sanitation using sport and play.

The tournament was held at the Olympic Youth Development Centre in Lusaka and was graced by the Deputy Minister of Sport who was pleased that sport in Zambia was being developed to do more than provide recreation but also to address social and economic issues.

The MDG on Water and Sanitation targets to reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.
