Bull Ring

In the sixties Manica was famous for high profile bull-fights. In 2004 GDM rediscovered the old bullring and today it is the site of playing and learning, a development hub under guidance of coach Hardlife.

The magical moments we have experienced in the bull-ring are so many that some are already being forgotten. This space, together with the passion of coach Hardlife and new generation of Abu, Alex, alan and others, shows that millions of dollars are not needed to make development happen. Local solutions are relevant and sustainable, and mostly needs just a bit of encouragement and assistance.

Its not all about football. But that does not take anything away from the football! Work hard, play hard, learn hard.
