Stakeholders Tanzania

In 2011 ending my study and international hockey career, I went to Tanzania to do voluntary work for a year. I 'm still in Tanzania. Besides my work I’m helping hockey to become more familiar to women in Tanzania. This has become a whole program: hockey as an important tool for development. A dream is coming true!
