IGETS, the project which propelled the Club towards such important achievements both on and off the field, was fully funded by the EU (80%) and the Maltese Government (20%)
The Ghajnsielem Redcoats was one of six NGOs who received financial support for projects which they implemented in their community. During a presentation held on Thursday, June 6, at the Ministry for Education and Employment in Floriana, the Parliamentary Secretary for Youth, Sports and Voluntary Organisations, Hon Dr Clifton Grima, presented the second cheque to Club President, Joseph Scicluna, as part of a co-financing commitment from the Government in support of the two-year project which was successfully concluded on December 31, 2018.
Following the EACEA’s assessment of the final report of the Erasmus+ Sports: Small Collaborative Partnerships project, Inclusion & Gender Equality Through Softball, it was the turn of the local authorities to evaluate the project to ensure that it met its stated objectives and adhered to its contractual obligations. Once again IGETS passed with flying colours and the final payment for the Redcoats was approved.
The co-financing from the Maltese Government is yet another vote of confidence not just in the project itself but also in the Club and its efforts to promote gender equality in sports. This also means that IGETS, the project which propelled the Club towards such important achievements both on and off the field, was fully funded by the EU (80%) and the Maltese Government (20%).
The Ghajnsielem Redcoats would like to thank Hon Dr Clifton Grima, the Parliamentary Secretary for Youth, Sports and Voluntary Organisations, and everyone within the Secretariat for their support.
The Club will continue to strive for gender equality in sports Malta and Gozo.
