The Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) has hosted a delegation from the German Olympics Sports Confederation (DOSB) to discuss cooperation between the two organisations.
The guests were introduced to a schools’ sport programme, Sport for Development, which is being officially launched next month by the JOC in cooperation with the GIZ Regional Programme.
The project aims to increase the number of students being introduced to Athletics and Volleyball in the first year of the programme, with more sports to be added in the coming years.
So far, 100 kids have been assessed and also undergone medical tests to ensure that they are able to compete in sport.
They will train for two hours a day, four days a week after school time.
The Germans praised the project and its role of motivating students to practice sport in order to improve their skills and lead a healthier and active lifestyle.
