Women In Sports, a Non Governmental Organization (NGO), committed to the development and promotion of sporting programmes involving girls and women has lunched their 3rd Anniversary and an Achievers Day.

This event is to reward outstanding women who have contributed to Ghana Sports.

Madam Gloria Commodore, Executive Director of WISA said many people have sacrificed for Ghana Sports and it is important to recognize and honour.

She said that there would be a Health Walk on September 30 and afterwards about 20 outstanding personalities would be rewarded by WISA.

Mrs. Commodore said the Shukura Keep Fit Club, Die Hard Supporters and others groups will grace the occasion with their jama songs.

She pleaded with corporate Ghana to contribute to the programme that will encourage more female participation in sports.

She thanked the media, especially SWAG members who attended the launch.

Madam Rosemary Gaizie, President of the NGO congratulated all women involved in sports.

She said WISA is not to rival anybody or group, but rather to compliment and support others promoting and developing sports.

“Our slogan; we are together, reflects the unity of purpose, which is the hallmark of every team that goes into any sporting event. We are encouraged by your turn out at today’s event, which tells us that together, we will actualize our motto “empowering women through sports”.

“We are not strangers when it comes to the challenges women in sports face. This association seeks to tap fully the opportunities in such challenges through every means that will empower our women in all sporting spheres, both on and off the field.” She said.

She said Women In Sports NGO is not to compete with any organization, but to contribute their widow’s mite and join forces with progressive organisations to promote women in any sporting business, and celebrate their success stories.

Mr. Robert Sarfo Mensah Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA) who chaired the function assured WISA of any support that would make them realize their aspirations of seeing an improvement in Ghana sports, especially where females are involved.
