GEF Secretariat Takes Its Best Foot Forward in World Bank Charity Soccer Tournament

July 17, 2009

17 JULY 2009 | WASHINGTON DC - Members of the GEF Secretariat and Evaluation Office made their inaugural appearance at the 7th annual World Bank Soccer Club's Charity Soccer Tournament held July 11, 2009 at the Bretton Woods Recreation Center in Germantown Maryland.

 

The GEF was one of the few invited members to field two teams, one of which advanced to the first playoff round. We also had the honor of being one of the only handful of teams to include both men and women on the roster so we are proud to practice what we preach on gender main-streaming!

We are looking forward to making this a tradition at the GEF and watch this space for future updates on our action on the pitch.
