Forsports Foundation, a Football for Good NGO based in Sunyani, the Bono Regional Capital has recently been recognised by various Global Sports for Good Networks for their work in using football to help in the delivery of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Common Goal powered by Streetfootballworld Network which was set up by former Manchester United footballer Juan Mata accepted membership of Forsports Foundation for their Football for Good projects and issued them a Certificate of Membership in 2021.
In March 2023, UN Football for the Goals (FFTG) and Sport for Social Change Network Africa (SSCNA) also recognised their contributions and accepted them officially and issued them Certificates of recognition as well.
In accepting these Certificates, the Founder and CEO of Forsports Foundation, Mr Christopher Forsythe, thank the networks for their recognition and said this wouldn’t have happened without the support of its Trustees, Management, Volunteers and Participants. Mr Forsythe said the foundation would continue to improve by helping the use of football to support the efforts of the government to stem the efforts in containing anti-social behaviour that the youth of the three regions in which they operate, Bono, Bono East and Ahafo Regions. He appealed to Nananom and Community Leaders to approach them whenever they need them to run programmes that will help the youth abstain from practices which can jeopardise their future through peer pressure. He also mentioned that their doors are open to like-minded organisations within Ghana who might want to collaborate with them on some of the programmes they deliver.
In his final remarks, Mr Forsythe thanked their supporters for helping them achieve all these recognitions which include, Kits for the World-The Netherlands, Shoes4Life-Czech Republic, Macron-Italy etc.
