Blitz Academy in Soweto and IF Väster in Gothenburg, Sweden, have been co-operating for five years.
While Blitz after six years i still a new organisation, IF Väster has experience since 1973 of taking care of kids through sports.
We started the sixth year of co-operation in January in Soweto with a course in how to run a club.
There was a mixture of new and old faces among the participants.
Among the new ones were IF Väster´s chairman Kent Karlsson and Marita Schwartz, also from Sweden, that visited South Africa for the first time.
During this year we are working for the growth of Blitz as an important player in the society of Soweto.
