PRESS RELEASE: UGANDA OLYMPIC COMMITTEE STRATGIC ALLIANCE WITH AWF, LAUSANNE SWITZERLAND, AUGUST 14
Formed under the category of Child and Youth Development within the Social Responsibility Unit, the alliance is a demonstration of UGANDA OLYMPIC COMMITTEE commitment to providing development opportunities for athletes. A sustainable lifestyle post sporting career is a key objective for any athlete. Without higher education too many athletes are experiencing a narrow pathway of opportunity in securing an enjoyable working future. Obtaining higher education is paramount in improving the skill set of retiring athletes and providing long term returns of social and economic benefit to the communities that once supported the athletes.
