Namibia: German Short-Term Project Supports Women's Football

Windhoek — During another short-term project organized by the German Sports Olympic Committee, DOSB and financed by the Federal Foreign Office, this time supporting Namibian football, Kathrin Peter offered her expertise in the area of women's football.

Focal points were the training of young female talents and coach education orientated at long-term preparation for the African Cup of Nations for women's national teams, which will be hosted by Namibia in 2014.

These short-term projects take place in addition to the long-term project carried out by German expert and NFA Technical Director Klaus Starke from the German Football Federation (Deutscher Fußballbund).

The project also included a donation of equipment worth approximately N$40 000, consisting of sports clothing (T-shirts, raincoats, goal-keeper gloves, etc.), training material such as balls, electrical ball pumps and marker vests (bibs), as well as first aid kits.

The equipment was officially handed over by Peter and Starke to NFA General Secretary, Barry Rukoro who cherished this valuable donation by the German Sports Olympic Committee, DOSB and the Federal Foreign Office.
