Sandlanders in 2012

December 31st, 2011 - Author: admin

Many thanks to all our supporters for your help and encouragement during 2011. The year has seen progress on a number of fronts as we have taken on a new club (Kenya’s Ligi Ndogo), engaged Architecture for Humanity London to work on designs for a unique pitch and community centre development in Ghana and attracted Hong Kong’s Tsunami Sports to design custom made kits for all of our clubs.

Behind these developments, the local clubs have been working hard to engage with the co-operative authorities to ensure that we develp as effective co-operative organisations. This process will take time but in each country we have visited there is genuine excitement about the prospect of developing strong, sustainable and supporter owned sports clubs.

2012 has been appointed as the UN’s International Year of Co-operatives and will consequently be a significant time for the co-operative movement as a whole. We are working hard on a couple of projects in particular to celebrate the occasion and look forward to providing further details in due course.

More information about the International Year of Co-operatives can be found here. The website includes an excellent story on the progress of the Keta Sandlanders Co-operative in Ghana.

With very best wishes for 2012,

Sandlanders Football
