First ever 'Ghana NGO games' to be held in October

The first ever “Ghana NGOs Games” has been pencilled down for October and is expected to feature among others, Ghanaian and International Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), development agencies, social clubs and strategic partners in the NGO world. It is expected to be held at the El - Wak Sports Stadium in Accra on Saturday October 5, 2013 and would be under the theme “Building Partnerships for Development”
This is interesting...development professionals on the fields partnering for development through sports would be awesome indeed!

The maiden event is an initiative of ORPED Sports which is a subsidiary of ORPED Ghana. A release from the secretariat said members of Staff of these organizations would engage in various sporting disciplines like football, basketball, volleyball, athletics, and a special ‘Development Game’ designed by the organizers among others.
The statement added: “By bringing all these organizations together ORPED Sports will use the opportunity to promote the international agenda of Sports for Development (SFD) in Ghana”.
It is expected that participating would deepen their work towards building the needed partnerships and discuss the use of sports as an effective tool in achieving development objectives in accordance with the eighth Millennium Development Goal which is to “Develop a global partnership for development”
The ‘Ghana NGOs Games’ will provide a common platform for NGOs to interact, network, exchange ideas, showcase their work and also provide a relaxing atmosphere for all participants, taking them away from their normal busy schedules. It is hoped that participants will get to know what others are doing in the NGO world in Ghana and establish strong, healthy and sustainable relationships.
