Additional Info about Us
ANOPA is an acronym which stands for Agoro Ne Obra Pa which means playing for a better life in english.It is a sports for development project which started in 2010 as a German Government initiative in Cape Coast,Ghana. After 2015 when the sponsorship from Germany finished the project was registered into an NGO with a partner NGO in Germany called ANOPA e.v. ANOPA uses sports as a tool for individual development, promotion of gender equity, mobilisation, community engagement, peace building among others.ANOPA uses sports such as swimming, volley, taekwondo,soccer,basketball and handball to bring about mobilisation and accelerate development within various communities.The main sports ANOPA uses as a problem solving approach or tool is swimming.The project is located along the coast where the sea is quite dominant hence high drowning rates.The project embarks on swimming lessons to particularly children, the youth and various security officers to help curb the drowning rate and save lives as well.So far the project has trained more than 1000 kids and 200 security officers within the Cape Coast district. The project has also been able to form the central regional swimming team that has won several medals and trophies including gold,silver and bronze and competing for laurels.The team is now part of the National Swimming Association.
The project also goes to schools and educate students on the environment and sanitation and the need to keep the environment clean. This particular program is under the Nothinleavesearth project where upcycling and good sanitation is our concern.
