Mr Ian Osei-Owusu, Director of Sports, Bright Generations Community Foundation, non-governmental organisation, said an assistance would significantly assist to unearth sporting talents.
He said the situation where many communities lacked proper training pitches, play grounds and other infrastructure was unhelpful to the nation’s sports development and added the situation has accounted for the poor performance in the other disciplines apart from football.
Mr Osei-Owusu said these to the GNA Sports after he presented three sets of jerseys each to the Madonna Ladies Football Club (FC) and the Garden City Senior High School (SHS) female team at Sepe-Buokrom in Kumasi.
The items were a joint donation from the NGO and Lockeroom-CA, an internet-based marketing organization.
The Director of Sports said that sports has of late become an avenue for employment generation and wealth creation and that was why stakeholders should work together to improve and build more sports infrastructure for especially the youth.
Mr Osei-Owusu advised the beneficiaries to take good care of the items, be disciplined and to train harder to enable them to realize their dreams.
Miss Ruth Owusu, Captain of the Madonna FC, said they were grateful for the donation and called on others to emulate the example and assist develop sports at the grassroots level.
