In February 2014, God blessed a group of women to organise, appreciate and honour their fellow women who are contributing positively to the development of sports in the country, be it athletes, administrators and journalists among others.
However, the responsibility fell on one of them and with her passion for sports, she continued to build the Women In Sports Association (WISA), an NGO, which was formed and duly registered at the Registrar Generals Department in Accra the same year. It was to celebrate women in all fields of sporting activities annually and to inspire others to give of their best in their chosen sporting careers.
With her hard work and support from the National Sports Authority (NSA), Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), corporate Ghana (sponsors) and her able executives, the annual WISA Awards became a formidable event as many sports women across the length and breadth of the country looked forward to it yearly. So far, a substantial number of sports women have been recognized, empowered and inspired by this initiative to work even harder in their various sporting fields. That woman is Madam Gloria Commodore!
Six years later, Madam Gloria Commodore, Executive Director and President of WISA has felt the urge to begin a fundraising project called WISA CHARITIES, to support its members, especially disabled sports women in the country to help them excel in their careers.
As we launch the initiative today, December 18, 2020, via social media, WISA is calling on the general public, corporate entities, philanthropists and benevolent groups to come on board to donate any amount to make the dream a reality.
You can make donations from GH₵10.00 and above into the WISA Mobile Money Account – +233(0)244104599 or +233(0)245017487 and WISA will be most grateful. For donors abroad, contributions from $2, £2 and €2 and above will be welcomed. Please note that Certificates of Appreciation will be emailed to all donors!
Kindly follow the launch on Facebook @facebook.com/Women in Sports Association at 12pm today, Friday, 18th December, 2020.
