Premier Skills helping Botswana to get ahead

How the Premier League’s lead international initiative is changing lives in Botswana

Premier Skills in action

On Saturday, Botswana will continue their attempt to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations for only the second time in their history when they face Mali in the first leg of qualifying.

“The Zebras” may have never played in the FIFA World Cup but they have been on the rise in African football and were the first country to book a place in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

Aiming to stop them qualifying for the tournament in South Africa in January are a Mali side with a strong Premier League influence – Fulham’s Mahamadou Diarra and West Ham United’s Modibo Maiga are in the squad.

Botswanan football too is also feeling the benefit of the Premier League’s assistance with a scheme to ensure that the country’s improved elite ranking is replicated at grassroots level.

Success story

Premier Skills, an international partnership between the Premier League and the British Council, operates in 20 countries around the world and develops community coaches and referees so that they can pass on their knowledge and expertise to others.

The initiative has been going for five years, in which time more than 350,000 young people have benefited from the programme, while 1,500 community coaches and referees have been trained.

Botswana is one of the Premier Skills success stories and with the help and support of the Botswana Football Association, the programme has completed the final Phase Three where newly trained coaches who have come through the scheme begin to coach new trainees.

You can watch a video feature on how the programme has changed lives for Batswana (as people of Botswana are called) by clicking on the photo at the top of this page, and here, two Premier Skills coaches describe what impact the initiative has made on them.

What have you learnt from Premier Skills and how are you able to impart that knowledge to the community?

Fatima Sedimo: I have been involved with Premier Skills since 2009 and I have learnt a lot. As a teacher to the mentally challenged and the physically disabled I have learnt how to include life skills within training sessions. I have found it very easy, even with the most severely disabled children, because Premier Skills has taught me to work from simple to complex and how to use different equipment to suit different levels of learners.

Barobi Nwako: I have learnt that football is not just a game but a tool that we can all use to teach to the community. I have learnt to run community projects through football and to teach my players some lessons on life skills.

What do think of Premier Skills and how it is affecting the community? 

Barobi Nwako: It has helped us a great deal. I have attended a few courses on coaching but on how to use football on the pitch . My eyes have been opened as Premier Skills has taught me how to use football to reach out to the community and to spread different messages on life skills through football.

What has it been like as a Premier Skills champion passing on the knowledge to new coaches?

Fatima Sedimo: It has been a wonderful experience. The response was positive. Botswana is a small country and we have few skilled coaches but Premier Skills is helping to increase that number which will help our communities back at home especially the ones in the remotest areas.

How do you think the children have responded?   

Barobi Nwako: It’s wonderful, it’s awesome. It was our first time working with them but everything was superb I’d say. The first day is a challenge but I have enjoyed being with them.

What do you think of the Premier League and its involvement in communities like Botswana? 

Fatima Sedimo: It is a wonderful because they have taught us many things and made us into coach educators. We are going to transfer the education they gave us to our brothers and sisters and there are courses going on around the country that after a year or so will be all around Botswana.

Is the Premier League popular in Botswana?

Barobi Nwako: Everyone is supporting Premier League teams. We support Arsenal, we support Chelsea, and we support Wolves. It’s amazing the way we support the Premier League teams.

Fatima Sedimo: Yes, because of Premier Skills it has become very popular, everyone asks about it and wants to become engaged in it. Botswana football is very proud of the Premier League.

A Good Jessie that have I meet

Like the the other person,I compare to this person in Late President Magsaysay,He is a man of masses of Naga city

Was born on May 27, 1958 at Naga City.He is the 3rd of 5 siblings of Jose Chan-Robredo Sr. and Marcelina Manalastas.

He studied elementary at Naga Parochial School a private Catholic school where he began to hone his talent and love for chess.The school was known and had established a record for winning Bicol’s annual province-wide chess tournament and Robredo’s brother had been among its champions. However, when it was Robredo’s turn to represent his school, he only garnered second place.

He entered high school at Ateneo de Naga University in 1970 and was in junior year when President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law in September 1972. The university administration immediately called an assembly and warned its students against getting involved in anti-government activities – which could result in the school being closed down.

In 1980, Robredo worked for the San Miguel Corporation in Mandaluyong City, in the Physical Distribution Technical Services of the General Services Division, and within six months, Robredo had hurdled two of the three levels in the division and was then sent to the finance division for another six months.

When Robredo’s immediate superior transferred to Magnolia Ice Cream, San Miguel Corporation’s ice cream division, he was invited to come along. He was assigned to logistics planning and concurrently functioned as staff assistant to the physical distribution director.

In 1986, Robredo returned to Naga City, where he became Program Director of the Bicol River Basin Development Program, an agency tasked to undertake integrated area development planning in the three provinces of the Bicol region.

He obtained his undergraduate degrees in Industrial Management Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at De La Salle University. He was later accepted as an Edward Mason Fellow and graduated with a Masters of Public Administration degree from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in 1979. In 1985, Robredo finished his Masters in Business Administration at the University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City, as a scholar and was named the Graduate School and Faculty Organization awardee for scholarly excellence. The Far Eastern University bestowed Robredo with a doctorate in Humanities, honoris causa, during its 80th commencement exercise held at the plenary hall of the Philippine International Convention Center on April 4, 2008, recognizing his efforts to develop Naga City.

As he backs at the Naga City, he ran and elected as the Mayor in their city in 1988 at the age of 29.

He is the youngest mayor in Philippine history. His three terms as mayor ended on June 30, 1998.He was again elected as City Mayor in 2001 and finished his second three terms on June 30, 2010. He served for a total of nineteen (19) years as Naga City Mayor before being appointed on July 9, 2010 as Secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). Robredo was able to transform Naga City from being dull and lethargic to being one of the “Most Improved Cities in Asia,” as cited by Asiaweek Magazine in 1999.

During his time in city hall, Robredo was credited for “dramatically improved stakeholdership and people participation in governance, in the process restoring Naga to its preeminent position as premier city of the Bicol Region. In 1995, in recognition of his skills and competence as a leader and development manager, Robredo was elected President of the League of Cities of the Philippines, the national association of city mayors. Robredo also chairs the Metro Naga Development Council. He served as chairman of the Regional Development Council, the regional planning and coordinative body of Bicol’s six provinces and seven cities, from 1992 to 1998.In recognition of his achievements as Naga City mayor, Robredo was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service in 2000, the first Filipino mayor so honored.

From June 30 to July 9, 2010, President Benigno Aquino III was Secretary of Interior and Local Government, until Aquino named Robredo as Interior Secretary.At least two politicians from Bicol, Luis Ortega and Luis Villafuerte, Sr. expressed opposition to Robredo’s confirmation by the Commission on Appointments of which Villafuerte himself was a member. In March 2012, the Commission on Appointments bypassed Robredo’s nomination.He is Loving Father also in his family.He finished all the assignment  in his job.

But suddenly,On August 18, 2012 , the Piper PA-34-200 Seneca I aircraft (registered RP-C4431) carrying Secretary Robredo crashed off the shore of Masbate City. He was scheduled to go home and watch his daughter’s swimming competition in Naga City. The Philippine Department of Interior and Local Government said that the pilot sent a distress call to the Masbate airport requesting an emergency landing. The plane never made it to the airport and crashed in the sea. His body was retrieved three days later, August 21, 800 meters from the shore and 180 feet below sea level.

His funeral was held on Archbishop’s Palace in Naga City before it was transferred to Malacañan Palace for an official wake on August 24, 2012. His remains were later brought back to his hometown, Naga on the early hours of August 26. He was cremated on Tuesday, August 28, 2012.

On August 27, 2012, it was announced that Philippine President Aquino would confer the Philippine Legion of Honor with the rank of Chief Commander upon Robredo on August 28, 2012, just before the state funeral.

For me he is my good father,hero,public servant, and Man of Filipino.
