PCV Feedback: I would make sure through the correct authorities that the field was not reserved by someone else. But it was definitely worth it and I hope it continues after I leave.


GAD Coordinator: Great job, Jordan. Girls sports are such a good way to empower girls, and to show others that the girls are capable. Recommend funding. Note: Jordan said she might pick up the reimbursement funding in Cotonou.
GAD Finance: I am not even sure if I am allowed to comment, but Recommend Funding.
