Just Play is a sport for development programme with four objectives and is focused on children from the age of 5 to 12. #“As part of the festival programme athletes and children alike will participate, there will be interactive sessions focusing on health, gender, inclusion and protection. #“The Just Play program is using sport to help children develop healthy lifestyle habits, encourage gender equality, promote social inclusion and help children become confident in their abilities, “said Yalovi. #OFC Just Play coordinator Emmie Sorpe said the programme is rolling out to the country and there have been lots of interest shown by the kids. #“As we look at the increasing number of interest shown by kids we need more teachers, “she said. #“Our analysis have shown how participants have to travel far to participate in Just Play program so this workshop is to train the trainers. #We will train the participants so they can implement this program in their districts in the two-day of workshop, “she said.#Sorpe said the course is for trainers to refresh what they learnt in the workshop in May.#
