“Welcome to Ghana” – Woezor!

We were delighted when Kerry agreed to sign up as our 2015 Volunteer Coordinator. She’s volunteered with KickStart Ghana before and knows the charity and the people we work with really well. Through being Chair at Winant Clayton and being heavily involved at Exeter University she has an excellent knowledge of volunteering.

Over the summer she will be supporting our volunteers to make sure that they can really make an impact on our projects, including the 2015 summer school and reading club and coaching at Dynamo FC. She’ll also be evaluating our impact and working closely with the Ghanaian board on other projects.

She’s going to be blogging about her experiences over the summer and below is her first. We hope you enjoy.

Copa90’s Global Talent Search

Copa 90

Are you passionate about football? Think you have what it takes to represent Africa in telling football stories to the world? Then this competition is for you.

Copa90 are looking for six football fanatics, one from each continent, to tell football stories from around the globe. At the moment they have loads of entries but they are missing ones from the most passionate football country on the planet, Ghana!

At KickStart Ghana we know how important football is to Ghanaians. It doesn’t matter if you were born in Accra, Ho or Tamale, whether you are male or female or if you are young or old. Everything stops when when the Black Stars step on to the pitch.

We would love to see a Ghanaian represent Africa as part of Copa90’s work. To enter you need to make a short video detailing why you think you would be the best person for the job and upload it to YouTube. Entries close on 9th August 2015.

The full details and how to enter can be found on the Copa90 website.
