THE Guyana Telephone Telegraph company (GTT) has signed on to the Fruta Conquerors Football Club’s Youth Football summer camp by donating 20 footballs during a small session yesterday.The Telecommunications giant handed over the balls to the Club’s secretary Daniel Thomas on Tuesday and according to Public Relations Officer Allison Parker, the company has always fostered a good relationship with the football club.The camp began on July 10 and is scheduled to end on July 28 at the club’s Tucville location.According to Parker, following a request for six footballs, the company decided to donate 20 footballs instead, adding that the company is looking to assist in further avenues where possible.Meanwhile, Thomas, who is also the facilitator of the Youth camp noted that the club’s mandate is to ensure that those students on school break are involved in positive activities objective to gainfully occupy the youths of the surrounding community during the school break.The programme, Thomas noted, is not just focused on pure football drills but also on academics with remedial lessons in English and Mathematics being taught during the morning sessions.He explained that two teachers volunteer to teach the children but are paid a stipend by the club. In addition to these teachers; volunteer lecturers from the University of Guyana will be holding interactive sessions with the older adolescents/teens and parents of the children as well, in an effort to better equip them with knowledge of nurturing and guiding their children at home.The Youth Camp initiative, which was started by the current Guyana Football Federation (GFF) president Wayne Forde 10 years ago, was taken over by Thomas in 2012.He noted that while the programme started off humbly, the club is now able to provide hot meals for the children through assistance from the National Sports Commission (NSC) and Scotiabank.The participants of the camp who are 50+ in number are merely asked to walk with their gear and no fee is required.
Last Friday, Spice It Up Miami at the Caribbean Marketplace/Little Haiti Cultural Complex highlighted Haitian photographer Joe Wesley, whose work mainly consists of “Black Bodies Art.”He enjoys photographing the naked body because “it’s about being free, transparent, accepting of who you are, what makes you more interesting besides your body.”Wesley stated that when our culture looks at naked bodies they are trained to think about sex. He is trying to change that.“These pieces are to look beyond the sex. I want people to appreciate and look deeper in the art. I allow the models to express themselves. I enjoy doing it, it is creativity,” he said.Wesley, who was born in Haiti and grew up in Opa Locka, has been a professional photographer for 10 years. He got into the business after failing to qualify for Florida State University.“This is a prime example of every disappointment is a blessing,” he said
Ahead of Ghana’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mozambique, new Minister for Youth and Sports, Nii Lante Vanderpuye has categorically stated that player bonuses would not be paid in dollars anymore but in Ghana Cedis.In 2014, the issue of money scuttled Ghana’s campaign at the World Cup finals in Brazil which resulted in a first round exit at the competition for the first time in three appearances.In a bid to rectify any further mishaps, Nii Lante has devised a measure to deal with the issue by paying the player’s in cedis.In a conversation with Kumasi based radio station Nhyira Fm Nii Lante laid out his plans.“Here in Ghana our currency is cedis, so if we all accept that we are paying them one dollar, that money would be calculated in cedis and be paid to them.”“We must also do things right and ensure that we pay them appropriately. I am sure that if we do that the players would respect and trust us.” “The government has directed that we don’t use dollars in the country so I don’t see why we should defy that.” Black Stars will play the Os Mambas of Mozambique in a double header with the first game to be March 24 the Accra Sports Stadium.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
