Game of Thrones is by far one of the most popular series in the country together with the rest of the world. Ps: If you have never watched Game of Thrones, i highly, highly, recommend that you do. That said, Jaime lannister aka the king slayer is slated to come to the 254 on the 5th of this month.
The actor, whose real name is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador and will be in the country as part of a regional tournament for women supporting the United Nations 17 Global Goals dubbed ‘Global Goals World Cup’ (GGWCup).
The tournament, organized by Safaricom, The Royal Danish Embassy, Save the Children, UNDP and Eir-Socceris set to have 24 teams of passionate women who will be assembled to compete and the winning team will get a spot in the global final to be held in New York City in September 2017. Nikolaj is set to referee the tournament.
About the tournament, Ulla Tørnæs, Denmark’s Minister for Development Cooperation said:
The Danish government is proudly supporting Global Goals World Cup. The 17 global goals, including their recognition of gender equality, are fundamental for our international engagement. It is indeed worth playing for. In Kenya, the Danish government for many years has supported women empowerment, women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights – and it is still a very important focus. I am happy to invite our partners to the tournament, playing for fun, creating awareness for the millions of women and girls in Kenya for whom the fight for their rights is deadly serious.
And Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore added:
The 17 UN global goals for sustainable development are a must win battle for our generation. Winning this battle requires an extraordinary and unified effort from governments, NGOs, private companies and civil societies, but the real key to success is that we – the people – get engaged and take action.
GGWCup originated in Copenhagen, Denmark and is rapidly spreading to all continents of the world. It was initiated and executed by Danish Soccer organization Eir-Soccer. Its aim is to utilize the beauty of sport to unite and inspire individuals all over the world to take positive actions.
