Soccer to climax World AIDS Day
A one day under 17 soccer competition would take place in Obuasi on Sunday, December 1, to climax this year's World AIDS day celebration.
It would be organised by the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) in collaboration with African Youth Alliance (AYA) and the Ghana AIDS Commission.
Rainer Akumprigya, Projects and Programmes Officer of NUGS, who announced this in Accra on Friday said the overall winner and the two runner-ups of the four-a-side competition, would be awarded presidential scholarships.
Akumprigya said so far, NUGS has distributed about 16,000 "AIDS games" such as ludo and other indoor games to selected Junior Secondary Schools throughout the country. He said the union has played a pioneering role in the campaign against the scourge and would continue to assist until the disease is completely eliminated.
Meanwhile, Paul Assosa, a Ghanaian ace walker, is undertaking a two-week AIDS awareness walk to Obuasi as part of the celebrations.
