The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) began the first in a series of “Kool Kidz” Grassroots Outreach Programmes on Sunday last at Parade Ground, Georgetown. The programme, launched on February 24 in partnership with the Guyana Beverages Inc., will see the GFF hosting bi-weekly sessions and targeting children of vulnerable communities.
The day saw approximately 25 children from the Tiger Bay and neighbouring wards being guided through fun activities to introduce them to the sport of football. This was conducted by the Technical staff including Technical Development Officers and Youth Development Officers. Members of the GFF Executive Committee, including President Forde, were also on hand to interact with and serve the children snacks following the activity. While children of Tiger Bay and surrounding areas were targeted yesterday, the schedule for additional sessions is as follows:
April 22, Roxanne Burnham Gardens – East Ruimveldt
May 6, St. Phillips – Leopold Street
May 20, Tarmac, Punt Trench – Albouystown
