Project Description: Jerseys for first-ever organized girls’ basketball team in Dogbo AND handballs for first-ever organized girls’ handball team in nearby village, Ahomey. I help coach the girls’ basketball team. They come every Saturday, sometimes twice, to learn the game of basketball and to practice their skills. We want to host a joint tournament (with the boys’ team, which already has jerseys) during the summer vacation, but the girls need jerseys. As for the handball team, the girls already have a coach, but they have almost no equipment. They asked if I would help by finding the means to buy two balls, while other community members have offered to buy nets and jerseys.
Dates of Project: May 2008
Number of People Involved: Dogbo girls’ basketball team (15 girls) and Ahomey girls’ handball team (20 girls)
Budget:

Item Number Cost
Jerseys for Girls' Basketball Team 10 10.000
Handballs for Girls' Team 40 40.000
Total 50.000

Comments

GAD Coordinator Comments: I think this is a great project. However, the price of the handballs listed in the budget has left me somewhat nonplussed. I can’t imagine paying 20,000 CFA for a handball. Recommend telling Holley to research those prices some more. There must be cheaper handballs in Benin.
