  1. 1. ForSports Founation be the change FOUNDER: CHRISTOPHER ANTOH FORSYTHE TRUSTEES MR. CHRISTOPHER ANTOH FORSYTHE-(CEO-FORSPORTS MANAGEMENT LIMITED) MR.FORSON OSEI-BONSU-(FINANCIAL MANAGER -NATIONAL CATHOLIC SECRETARIAT) ALFRED TUAH-YEBOAH Esq-(SOLICITOR-ASEMPA CHAMBERS) Introduction Professional sporting clubs throughout the world recognise that sport has a "power" and that this "power" can be used to inspire, to educate and to motivate thousands of individuals through the clubs community programmes. In Ghana the vast majority of sporting clubs have abandoned this form of programmes under which their community activities are supposed to take place. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, Forsports Management Limited through its Charity, ForSports Foundation wants to be involved with the community to ensure that it supports and encouraged the importance of this programmes to have impact on the communities. These programmes are no longer focused just on grassroots sport but on six different areas; Education, Health, Environment, Community Cohesion, Grassroots Sport and Amateur Sports Club Development. All these programmes can be easily reproduced across sports and be utilised in Ghana.
  2. 2. Project The ForSports Foundation is a registered charity established by ForSports Management Limited as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility to help the community use sports for social development, cohesion and change. The foundation will establish residential centre within Sunayani which will not only provide somewhere to live but also academic and vocational education to increase their opportunities and change their outlook and perspectives. The pride this creates within the community is very evident: the young people feel they are contributing to a better environment, rather than simply being provided for. We will also encourage sporting prowess, by providing facilities and coaches for the children. The charity is founded on the principle that health and fitness also brings discipline, ambition, healthy competitiveness and reward - as well as opportunities to play and enjoy the camaraderie of team sport, which many of them have missed out on. Therefore, as the charity establishes itself financially, we will invest heavily in the provision of sports equipment, allowing the children to truly benefit from the upside sporting activity brings. By encouraging this self-help attitude and instilling confidence, pride and self- belief in the teenagers that stay in the centres, we believe we will enable our residents to move forward successfully as adults, well-integrated into society, when they leave our homes. Project Details Health • "Health Kicks Programme" - A programme which encourages males who are 35 years and over to have a health check. • "A day in the life of a Football Player" - A healthy lifestyle programme for school children.
  3. 3. Social Cohesion • "Community Cohesion Programme" - Bringing different communities together to take part in sporting activities. • "Heart Beat" Programme in Sunyani - A programme that tackles anti social behaviour in Primary and Junior High School children. Education • "Study Support Centers’" - Creating a classroom at Sunyani Coronation Park to provide an alternative working environment for the children. • "Financial Capability" Programmes - Utilizing the coronation park and its operations to provide "hands on" experience, teaching basic financial capability skills. • "Enterprise Programmes"- Using match day experience at Coronation Park to develop an understanding of enterprise. The Environment • "Sustainable Energy Partnership" - Developing a pathway in schools to educate the pupils about sustainable energy and how the school can become an energy efficient building. • "Carbon Neutral Programme" - Working with schools in Sunyani and schools in the “Developed World” to ensure that pupils understand the importance of sustainable energy and the importance of reducing the Developing World's CO2 production. Residential Academy and Grass Roots Football Development • ForSports Foundation believes that football is a powerful tool for social change and therefore the prospects of using football to develop and shape the life of homeless and street children is very paramount. We believe that providing the kids with all the required training without offering them where they will lay their heads in the night and what is on the table for dinner, all our efforts will be meaningless after every training session. Our Residential Academy addresses these basic necessities in life. The project is run mainly on voluntary basis since we do not have enough funds to see through our ideas that over the short period of our operation and existence have registered so many success stories despite the very limited and dire financial situation we operate with. We believe that if the necessary resources (financial and human
  4. 4. especially) needed for the success of this project were made available, then we would not only make a huge contribution in the area of development from within from us and for us but also project the idea of how sports and football can be effective channels for sustainable and purposeful development. We will then be able to reach out to many children and the youth who are not able to benefit from our laudable initiatives due to the lack of resources. This could serve as a source for training multipliers and establishing different forms of cooperation with varied partners (individuals, government and non government organisations). With our desire to see the success of Grass Roots Football Development, we have team up with the Sunyani Municipal Juvenile Association to sponsor the U12 and U14 Colts league involving 18 clubs from each category every year. As part of the sponsorship, we provide the clubs football kits and equipments, training for the coaches, financial sponsorship etc. Amateur Sports Club Development • In conjunction with the Brong Ahafo Regional Football Association, we help the Division Two and Three Football Clubs in Brong Ahafo Region by offering training to their Coaches and also run seminars on Football Management for their Administrators.
