UNICEF - Galz & Goals

Women’s football, and specifically girls’ football in Namibia, recently received a big boost when the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) came on board as a technical and financial partner and announced an ambitious programme that aims to establish girls’ leagues in all corners of Namibia within the next three years.
Centaurus v Michelle McLean
The first phase of the Galz & Goals project starts this month, while Under 13 and Under 15 Leagues already got underway in three regions last month. A lot more activity is being planned, with leagues scheduled to start in three more regions when the second phase commences in September.

The co-ordinator of the Namibia Football Association’s Women’s Desk, Jacky Gertze said that UNICEF had decided to support the NFA to empower adolescent girls in Namibia through sport.

“Sport and recreation are important to UNICEF because they are vital elements in the health, happiness and well-being of children and young people worldwide. Globally, UNICEF works with governments and partners to use sport-based programmes to improve children’s lives and to strengthen communities. UNICEF teams up with leading sports organizations and world-renowned athletes to bring attention to challenges facing children and to mobilize resources to address them,” she said.

“Similarly, UNICEF is supporting the Namibia Football Association to empower adolescent girls through the expansion of football leagues,” she added. SKW v Hage Geingob
Objectives of Galz & Goals programme

The overall objectives of the programme are to expand U13 and U15 leagues to a national scale by 2012; to provide coaches with core information and resource materials on adolescent health and development, including HIV and alcohol prevention and the reduction of gender-based discrimination; and to support and advocate the programme in line with the added benefits and opportunities of the FIFA 2010 World Cup.

The NFA Women’s Desk under the leadership of Jacky Gertze is hard at work implementing their programmes, while girls leagues in six regions already got underway last month. Leagues, which are currently running in Khomas, Karas, Kavango, Omaheke, Erongo and Kunene, will be held over two seasons from April to July and September to November.

Girls football will also be introduced to new regions, initially through football festivals, with the aim of raising awareness and kick-starting new leagues.
Furthermore, coaches and players are being trained by providing core information on adolescent health and development, including HIV prevention, alcohol use and the reduction of gender-based discrimination.

The players’ progress will continually be monitored and highly talented youths will be identified and coached with the view of participating in future international tournaments. Here, the 2010 World Cup in South Africa can create a platform, with plans in the pipeline to send a girls team there, while further international tournaments over the next three years are also been targeted.

It is expected that 1 500 girls will be enrolled in football games and that 900 girls will play on a regular basis in the leagues. Furthermore, 240 girls football coaches and 240 players will be trained to advocate a healthy life style.

The programme, which includes Namibia Sport magazine and the non governmental organisation, SCORE, will be officially launched in June when an international female player, acting as a Youth Goodwill Ambassador, will patron the event.

According to Gertze, pilot leagues have been established in Windhoek, Rundu and Gobabis, while three more leagues will be established by 2010.

“By 2010 we are aiming to have six leagues with the inclusion of Karas, Kavango and Kunene, while we will also organise football festivals or one-day tournaments which will be also accompanied by workshops on healthy lifestyles which will be presented through the Directorate of Sport. These programmes will train new coaches and players on how to fight the IDS epidemic and how to live a healthy lifestyle in general. This will happen in Swakopmund, Keetmanshoop, Rundu, Windhoek and Khorixas, which will help us to establish leagues in these centres by 2010,” she said.

“The whole objective of the project is to help girls find their own space in the community, by using football as a tool to participate without any fear of discrimination or intimidation. UNICEF provides a platform where the girls will feel safe and valued, where they can play football, but also where they can learn about the
social issues that they are facing every day in the community. Football in general will benefit from this, while the girls playing the game will benefit in the long run, through education in the fight against AIDS and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle in general,” she said.                  Source: Namibia Sport Magazine - Helge Schutz

Fist - for the Norwegian readers: The background for the visit from Namibia is a cooperation between the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports and NORAD in Norway - and SCORE, an organization situated in South Africa and covering the three countries: South Africa, Namibia and Zambia.
The Namibian team comes from the capital Windhoek and stays in Norway as a part of the Norway Cup project. They will have a preparation course in Elverum in advance of Norway Cup and get a Norwegian friendship team from Elverum - the Elverum J-14 team.
The girls on the Namibian team say that it is good that the temperature is not so hot, but someone does not like so much rain - which there has been a lot of the last days. They have met their Norwegian friendship team, and last evening they had a barbeque party - after the training match. Both teams performed their songs and dances, and now they are familiar with some of each others traditions. An enjoyable evening!
The training match was good for both teams, and as a friendly match it ended with a draw 1-1. The Norwegian team scored first in the first half, and the equalizer came early in the second half. A very good performance by both teams!
