Kristof Van Royan, VSO volunteer in Lindi, applied for a grant to support the construction of a basketball court for youth groups to use as part of a youth development programme. TDT awarded a grant of £450.
The programme of skills development and participatory sport is aimed at raising young people's aspirations and expectations for working together with a positive view of their place in society. The court is currently under construction and further reports are expected. Encouragingly the local school and district authorities have also supported this project and the sports teacher at the school will ensure that there is sustainable care and use of the facility.
