Managing Director of SKI Contruction, Alex Mahaica recently presented sporting equipment, including a complete volleyball set to the Community of Pakuri, along with a promise of continued support.
“As a businessman I am giving my commitment that whenever and whatever that I can do to help… It is my humble wish that the youths primarily of Pakuri would be able to use these gears in further developing their skills and I trust that other persons, companies and organisations would come on board in helping them too because together we can help in developing sports stars,”Mahaica opined.
The sports oriented Toshao of Pakuri, Beverley Clenkain revealed that Mahaica has promised to follow up with a table tennis table among other sporting gear to further assist the community in its aggressive sports drive.
She noted that due to the distance of her community it is very difficult and costly for her youth to participate and or compete in a number of competitions. “We have talent and skills and we are confident that our youths can do very well, unfortunately owing to the high cost of travelling we are forced to decline many invitations, thus we have sought to establish a sports and cultural club with the aim of further strengthening the skill and talent that do exist,” Clenkain said.
The Toshao said that while the aim is to get the youths of the community involved in all sport, her primary focus at the moment is on cricket, volleyball, football, table tennis and athletics.
