Increasing interest in sporting activities
Khamis is one of many in his community who have benefited from the equipment provided. "Kikla has a good history and reputation in terms of sport achievements and participation in championships. Despite obstacles, the number of atletes in Kikla increased and reaches currently 200 from various cities," said Salem Al Qazi, Head of the Administration Department at Kikla Sports Centre, rehabilitated by the Stabilization Facility for Libya.
"Thanks to this new equipment and the repairing of the Sports Center, we have been able to relaunch sport activities including volleyball and bring in new players from neighboring cities," said Salem.
Abu Bakr Ramadan Masood, coach and volleyball player said "the clothes and boots are of excellent quality. We can see the positive difference in the performance of the team."
For Khamis, the reinvigoration of the Centre has been particularly important. "I consider the Sports Centre as my second home,” he said. “I also hope to be a volleyball coach in the future and create a junior volleyball team."
Currently, Khamis and his teammates are leading in the second division championship. Aided by the reopening of the Kikla Sports Centre and the new equipment, their ambition to enter the first division may soon be realized.
