Head of UCSA, Major General Ahmed Nasser, welcomed yesterday UNESCO representative in Africa, Ambassador Salah Khaled, with the key aim of discussing the means of widening the scope of cooperation between both sides.
During the meeting, both sides agreed to further boost joint cooperation, bearing in mind that 72 Olympic and non-Olympic federations are affiliated to UCSA.
It is worth mentioning that the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) is one of the key partners of UCSA. More importantly, UCSA’s role is not confined to holding sports events. UCSA also seeks to enhance its social responsibility through sports in general and through its partnership with UNESCO in particular.
Both sides are now mulling the implementation of the first joint project in Africa with the participation of Cameroon, Angola, Burundi, Chad and Guinea.
UCSA president stated that this is not the first time to meet UNESCO representative as he met him before in UCSA headquarters in Cameroon, expressing his pleasure to cooperate with the UNESCO to serve Africa over long and short terms.
