The manual has been developed by the ‘Sport for Development in Africa’ (S4DA) Regional Project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on sports grounds rehabilitation and construction.

The aim of the Maintenance and Repair Manual for Grassroots Sports Grounds is to assist Maintenance Managers in analysing the status of sports grounds, taking the necessary steps to prevent possible defects, repairing damages when necessary and maintaining sports grounds functional for a long time. The manual has been developed by the ‘Sport for Development in Africa’ (S4DA) Regional Project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

S4DA seeks to promote sport as a tool for positive youth development, education and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, it facilitates sports grounds rehabilitation and construction as well as local capacity development. This includes the training of sports coaches and other stakeholders who implement programmes and the development of strategies for sustainability regarding both the physical maintenance of sports grounds and the delivery of ‘Sport for Development’ (S4D) activities. In this process, social, cultural and economic factors in partner countries must be taken into account. Ultimately, local partners should be enabled to continue to train coaches and to maintain sports grounds and equipment on their own.

S4DA makes a significant contribution to the BMZ’s ‘More Space for Sport – 1,000 Chances for Africa’ initiative, launched in 2014 by the  Federal Minister Dr Gerd Müller as part of the endeavours to build a broad and effective alliance for Africa between sport, civil society and the private sector.
