Accra, July 4, GNA - Madam Gloria Commodore,
Executive Director of the Women In Sports Association (WISA) in Ghana, on
Tuesday met the top hierarchy of the National Sports Authority (NSA) at the
Accra Sports Stadium.
The meeting was to extend an invitation to them for this year’s Awards slated for September 2018 and also discuss the role of women in sports development.
Madam Commodore, who is a veteran journalist said, she loves and appreciates what the female sports women have been done and continue to do for Ghana, therefore has taken upon herself to honour outstanding athletes who deserve awards.
She said the women of Ghana have done much in the sporting sector and want the government to show appreciation by honouring them.
Madam Commodore however noted that government alone cannot do everything, hence the decision to form WISA to support governments efforts.
She thanked cosmetics giants, Ghandour Ghana Ltd for accepting to sponsor the 2018 WISA Awards and appealed to other companies to support women in sports.
This year WISA is rewarding 26 individuals for their roles in sports development. They include administrators, technical people, journalists, sports women and a popular sport supporter.
The media launch comes off on August 29 with the main event on September 29.
