Participation of SEDYA at the Streetfootballworld Festival 16
From 28 June to 7 July 2016, the Botswana’s “South East District Youth Empowerment Association” (SEDYA) participated in the Streetfootballworld Festival 16, which took place in Lyon, France.
SEDYA’s objective is to help young Batswana to be effectively informed of the HIV/AIDS disease issues and other socio-economic problems. In order to empower and support young people to take responsible action in community development, this association runs football leagues and tournaments which are all organized by young leaders and designed to promote life skills and safe sexual behavior.
The association was thus invited to participate in the event organized jointly by Streetfootballworld and “Sport dans la Ville”, a French NGO and which brought together 80 delegations of disadvantaged young people committed to use football to change the world for good.
The Cooperation department of the Embassy of France to Botswana sponsored financially this event by co-financing with other partners the plane tickets for the four young athletes who went to France to be part of the Festival.
