Wow! ASA knows all about West Papua since we have previously worked on Sports-based Life Skills & Health education across Sorong, thus, we are fully aware of the local peoplesâ€™ shear passion for our programming activities. However, we were not expecting such a massive turn out for the closing of the Coca Cola Amatil Indonesia (CCAI) supported, â€œCoke Kicks 2018â€ Grass Roots Community Capacity Building & Life Skills through Professional Soccer Development program that was staged at Dom Island Field in Sorong on November 18th, 2018.Â
Apart from a much larger group of 40 trainers together with 250 male and female youth joining the programming activities, with teams from Manokwari flying over to participate in the event, Day 2â€™s competition hosted 1,155 spectators who watched the matches with large groups of female players competing which, again, promotes gender equality and women empowerment for the activities. A special mention goes to talented female player Murni who was awarded the best player trophy and continues to be monitored by ASA! Well done Murni!
A massive thank you to long-term strategic project partner Coca Cola Amatil Indonesia (CCAI) for making this fantastic nationwide project possible and congratulations to everyone in Sorong!
