The Academy of Foreign Coaches in Mainz, Germany, offers courses for foreign trainers in athletics. This programme, financed by the German government, is open to nationals of the so called "developing countries".
The Embassy is very proud to be able to send Mr. Spencer Mettendaf from Suriname to attend the upcoming course starting in June this year. 

He has since started his course and seems to be doing well!
