Ilonka Elmont Foundation :: Ready & Able Train-the-Trainers

The Ilonka Elmont Foundation delivered twenty-five (25) enthusiastic and expert (sports) leaders in Paramaribo the second and final Ready & Able Train-the-Trainer program of 2014.
This took place on the 29th November, 2014 - 2nd December, 2014 and was organized with financial support from the Dutch Embassy in Suriname and Kosmos Energy.
Ilonka Elmont emphasized at the start of the training that the students with their (re)trained skills can play an important role in the lives of this group, where a significant contribution in particular in sport, healthy lifestyles and safety in sport can be delivered. Like the previous trainings, the training consisted of a theoretical, practical and certification component. In addition to the regular program there was also extra attention for (general) safety in sport, healthy lifestyles, first aid for sports injuries, class preparation, monitoring and evaluation.
As an important part of the certification, a sports day was organized for children with disabilities by the students as a monitoring and evaluation moment at SOSIS with over 60 children from the Kennedy School, VSO de Kans and the Louis Braille School. During this sports day the learned skills and flexibility of the students were monitored and evaluated. The sports day was a great success and both the children and the students have greatly enjoyed it.
With this new batch, Suriname has trained over 111 certified Ready & Able sports leaders since 2012. It should be mentioned that members of the Bureau of Special Education (MINOV), Surinamese Fire Department, Surinamese Police Corps, Surinamese Football Association and Surinamese Basketball Association, IOL and other interested parties participated in this training. With these new skills, the students can handle children with disabilities in combination with sport better.
The Ilonka Elmont Foundation is very satisfied on the past days and the completion of the Ready & Able Train-the-Trainer program 2014.
