The Roll Ball Federation Ghana (RBFG) in collaboration with Drug-Free World Africa will be organizing a Drug Abuse Campaign Walk to expose the young and old to the truth about drug abuse, how it is affecting the youth, and how they can effectively channel their energy and drive into other productive avenues.
The Campaign Walk promises to be exciting and will culminate in fun games amidst music and entertainment. The Federation would also like to use the opportunity to create awareness and drive interest and participation in the sport known as Roll Ball.
Roll Ball is a team sport that combines aspects of basketball, handball, and roller sports into a single sport. This sport was introduced in Ghana in 2018 and is fully registered under the Registrar General’s Department of Ghana. It currently operates under the National Sports Authority(NSA) and the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ghana.
The sport is engaging, fun, and if given the right conditions and attention can become something huge and a great option for most of these youth who idle about and resort to drugs and other forms of deviant behavior.
The details of the Campaign Walk are as follows:
Theme: Reaching the young and old with the TRUTH about drug abuse
Proposed Date: 19th Nov 2021
Proposed Route: Spanner Junction to Madina
Expected Number of Participants: 1,000+ Notable Patrons who will be in attendance or supporting this cause include, Sheik Osman Nuhu Shaributu – the National Chief Imam, Hon. Clemence Gyato – the National Peace Ambassador, Hon. Mustapha Ussif – Minister of Youth and Sports, Prof. Peter Twumasi – Director of National Sports Authority, Hon. Sylvester Tetteh – MP for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro Constituency, Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomson – Minister of Fisheries and Aqua Culture Department among others.
