deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Youths and Sports, Abdoulie Kah,
has donated two giant trophies to the Gambia Volleyball Federation as his
personal support to the African Dream Project.
The Dream Project is one of the most important development projects in the history of volleyball in The Gambia.
“The African Dream Project” is under the supervision of FIVB President Dr Ary Graca.
The project is named “Dr Ary Graca Volleyball Development Program for Africa” as it comes from the extreme interest of the World Volleyball Governing body “FIVB” to help volleyball development from the grassroots.
The dream project is purely meant for grassroots volleyball and the participants are expected to represent their respective nations in the CAVB and FIVB Youth championships in the future.
Receiving the trophies, the Project Director for the Gambia, Bai Dodou Jallow, thanked DPS Kah for his timely intervention in the implementation of the project in The Gambia.
The African Dream Project is a stepping stone for the development of volleyball in the country and will aid the promotion of the game among the grassroots as well as reassure mass involvement across the country, Jallow said.
It is expected to become a major power in the near future as there are lots of young people in The Gambia with the talent and strength to play the game.
The Ministry of Youths and Sports, the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education and the Gambia National Olympic Committee are the direct partners with the Gambia Volleyball Federation in the implementation process.
