Handball for girls

We think it is extra important to get more young girls in to sports.

In many African countries, handball is already the most popular sport among girls, and together with the African Handball Federation, we have developed a plan on how to get even more young girls.

The plan includes:

  • Visit from the local handball clubs in the schools
  • Test days
  • Training of more female leaders
  • Promoting more female role models
  • Access to more pitches
  • Access to equipment

The first country out will be Ivory Coast.

Responsible: Emile Kouassi

My name is Emile Kouassi and I am 34 years old.

I have a master’s degree in communication “Press and PR practice” from Alassane Ouattara University of Bouaké (2006-2010)

After University my sports interest led me to start working at the Communications Department for the Sports and Recreation Ministry in Côte d’Ivoire.

I have also worked on a voluntary basis with communication at several sports associations, eg. the Ivorian Handball Federation, the Ivorian Motorcycle Federation and the Ivorian Floorball Federation.

Now I look very much forward to helping Esprit de Sport with the communication and taking responsibility for the two programs for “Development of girl handball” and the program for “Communication and administration”.
