19th October - 2nd November
CWBs sixth specific Botswana project started with the team based in the capital Gaborone for the first week with coaching sessions in the nearby towns of Kanye, Moshupa and Jwaneng, world famous for its huge diamond mine.
Being based in the capital also allowed our HIV/AIDS specialist Sam to arrange various meeting with local contacts to discuss strategies on how best to convey the message in Botswana.
Week 2 was in Francistown a regular location on CWBs schedule and once again our coach education programme was well attended with just over 100 new coaches being trained throughout the fortnight.
Add to this around 1,600 children who attended a session and even a days ‘rest’ on safari and all in all it adds up to another fantastic project.
Huge thanks to Clement and the rest of the BCA staff for their help in organising a successful and enjoyable two weeks.
