TAFISA Secretary General Wolfgang Baumann noted: “Alliances are needed to counteract the negative effects of the epidemic of physical inactivity. We are proud to partner up with the leading regional authority in the field to achieve the objectives set by TAFISA’s Mission 2030 and make a positive difference in the lives of citizens. We strongly believe that by joining efforts and the experiences of the ten countries we can build a better world through Sport for All.”
AUSC Region 5 CEO Stanley Mutoya said: “The smart partnership with a Global giant like TAFISA serves to endorse the credibility and trajectory of the AUSC Region 5 in the area of sports development and investment in human capital, specifically in physical activity and women empowerment. A healthy lifestyle among the 177 million citizens of this Region easily translates to socio-economic dividends which contributes immensely towards upliftment of the standard of living within all the participating Member Countries. ”
