Through their coach Moses, we kept in touch and Trishila and Trinity joined us on the 2012 tour as coaches when we moved to Jinja. Trishila was a fantastic help and often took the lead with groups of children.
Post tour we have stayed in touch and Trishila’s enthusiasm has never ceased. In February 2013, along with a few supportive teachers, she organised training sessions for 3 local schools.
There were 22 girls as, in Trishila’s words “boys are hard to get”, and this is a key principal to NDT tours, where we ensure girls and boys play together at all stages. Coaches Ziyade (Walakuba West school), coach Moses (Jinja SSS), Caroline and Mary (young leaders) helped Trishila with this.
The schools were Help, Daystar and Walukuba West who we have worked with before. All the children were new to netball, so it was a great learning curve for all involved.
On the final day, the 2 teams were called Monica and Julie, for which we at NDT are incredibly proud (blue team – Monica, grey team – Julie).
