Street Handball Gambia event at Fandema School

We met and talked with Malang Sambou, Co-founder and Chairman of Mbolo Association/Fandema based at Tujereng village, Kombo South District, West Coast Region, The Gambia.

Here we hosted a lesson of Street Handball matches for fun with the fair play rules on their playground and boys and  girls students were really happy to run around and play.

We hope they will in future have physical education lessons with Street Handball ;D 

The children really like it. And it was easy to see they have tried it before with Dawda Bah as coach.

Fandema / Mbolo Association Fandema works with women aged 18 to 65, especially those who have never been to school or left school early and want to improve their quality of life.

Training is offered in basic, occupational and transversal education in order to help in the economic development of the community.

Occupational training creates jobs and produces materials to contribute to the self-sustainability of the project.

They also have an international school for children call ‘Fandema International Nursery and Primary School’ (FINPS). More than 8 nationalities sent their children to Fandema. They have both national and international sponsors. They are running projects in the six regions of the country. 

Fandema School is based at Tujereng Village, Kombo South District, West Coast Region, The Gambia. “Fandema” is a Mandinka borrowed word. It means help yourself.

Street Handball International founder Soren Goldberg Kjer visited Street Handball Gambia project manager Dawda Bah at his home village Tujereng. Soren was first welcomed at Dawda’s home where he was introduced to the family and had a coffee break.  

Later in the afternoon, Dawda and Soren hosted street handball games at Batokunku and played with kids near the community main mosque.

Sixty (60) girls and boys attended the evening sessions, and for some, this was their first experience of the game and they really enjoyed playing it.

“We are super proud of these kids. They did very well and learnt a lot.

Well done to Dawda Bah, Ousainou Ngum and Alpha Touray for the job well done”, said Soren Guldberg Kjer, Street Handball International founder.

We were invited by the Warriors Handball Club, one of the highly decorated clubs in The Gambia to host Street Handball games for fun. Due to the preparation of the national U-17 female squad on their own ground, we decided to play on the concrete outside Bakau Stadium.

It was some awesome hours where children also took part together with the senior teams from Warriors HC. They all did it very well and Warriors HC players got handball t-shirts donated from Bramming IF Handball, which is Soren’s childhood club in Denmark.

They all have never tried handball before. They did it awesome with a big smile on their faces. They made a tactic schedule in the sand with fingers. When finished they all got a water bottle for participating.
