Life skills training

Before the RTL under 19 girls‘ Emerging 7s kicked off, Flavia Agenorwot held a Life Skills and Menstruation Hygiene Management session with the players. The tournament is at Kings Park Arena in Bweyogerere.

The Uganda Lady Cranes 7s team who had just wound up their training session also introduced themselves to the players and gave motivational speeches and encouraged the players to aspire to play for Uganda as well. The Lady Cranes 7s players then attached themselves to the 7 teams and will give them guidance during the tourney.

This tournament and the Life Skills and MGM sessions were made possible by a donation from Ruusuvuoren Koulu in Finland. Kiitos!
