Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb last Friday sponsored N$10 000 towards the hosting of Tsinsabis’ first ever football tourney.
Dundee’s N$10 000 donation is also the first ever for Tsinsabis and came two days after the smelter’s N$100 000 donation towards the restoration of the dilapidated Tulipamwe open market in Tsumeb.
The donation will be used to purchase medals, host the sports day and more importantly unite the community under the banner of sports.
Tsinsabis’ first major sporting event will not only be a celebration of sports, but also present an opportunity for local community groups to showcase themselves and inspire others.
By funding the sporting day Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb will improve the value of life in the Tsinsabis community and at the same time uphold its value of community investment.
Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb community relations coordinator, Michael Heita, applauded the Tsinsabis committee for coming up with the idea of staging a sports day initiative aimed at uniting the community under a constructive social platform.
“Sports provide opportunities for children and the youth to engage in valuable and positive relationships with adults, which is especially important when such benefits are not available at home.
“I applaud you – there is no question that providing opportunities for youth and children to take part in healthy and positive sporting activities benefits the overall well-being of the entire community.
“Please consider Dundee as a committed partner in ensuring development in and around Tsumeb, and rest assured in the knowledge of our continuous support,” Heita stated.
Chairman of Young Lions Happening Football Club, Paul Gioub, conveyed gratitude towards Dundee from the community. “No one has ever sponsored a football tourney in our town, this is a first of its kind in Tsinsabis.”
