WhizzKids United to partner with Sony
Published by Oli Walsh
Africaid′s WhizzKids United programme has been selected as one of three organisations to take part in a Leadership Development Programme, led by Sony through the streetfootballworld network.
The programme aims at supporting network members to develop their leadership, communication and management capacities.
In a thorough application process, project proposals were received and evaluated. The final selection was made based on a wide range of criteria, including thoroughness of application, proof of need of support, impact for the organisation, benefits for the Sony managers, etc.
The three organisations that were selected were;
Whizzkids United (South Africa)
The Kids League (Uganda)
Grupo Desportivo de Manica (Mozambique)
All three organisations will consult with Sony managers, who will work with them remotely over the next 4-6 months to help them develop their leadership skills and general operations. The Leadership Development Programme will be launched officially in an event in early February.
