Preparations for Training-of-trainers (ToT) seminar in 2016 are in full swing

Vorbereitungen für Training-of TrainerWith the help of a generous donation by World Shop in Landau preparations are currently ongoing for the long-planned Wheelchair Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop at the Basketball for Development Center in Mutengene. Our team in Buea has begun to evaluate the necessary measures at the Center. Together with the Modern Vocational Program (MVP) Workshop, which offers Wheelchair bulding and repairing in Buea, the first prototypes are built and tested. Once suitable wheelchairs can be built on budget, we will than produce the first ten Wheelchairs, test them in different workouts and continue to improve them. In the dry season 2015/2016 Project Robin Kaltenbach will leave with another wheelchair basketball specialists to Cameroon to hold a one-week training-for-trainers workshop in Mutenge on the Basketball for Development Center.
The donations received so far allows us to prepare everything very well. However, for the implementation of the seminar and other activities at the Center, we kindly ask all friends and supporters for donations.
