New Project Manager for Just Play

On 4 April, new Tahiti Football Federation Project Manager Céline Haapuea joined the OFC Just Play team in Auckland for a week long training which focused on technical aspects of the programme, partnership management, monitoring as well as evaluation and communications.
Quick-learning Haapuea was able to grasp Just Play concepts within hours, allowing Technical Coordinator Emmie Sope and Monitoring and Evaluation coordinator Supriya Kulkarni-Padhye to expand on basic training and build on more complicated aspects of the programme.
Head of Social Development and International Relations Franck Castillo was very impressed by the attitude and work ethic Haapuea brought to the training and is confident that she will make a valuable contribution to Just Play.
“Already Céline has learnt basics about the programme that could have taken months to understand. She arrived in Auckland determined to learn and remained focused on the content all week. The training has been a huge success, and I know that we have made the right decision in selecting Celine to lead Just Play in Tahiti” Castillo says.
“With Céline on our team, Just Play Tahiti will finally reach its potential.”
Haapuea returns to Tahiti on Friday 8th April to commence instructor and coordinator training. Technical coordinator Emmie Sope will join her in the upcoming months to assist with capacity building.
