A team in Adado town that adopted the Tabar Wadaag development project name has beaten their rivals FC Kaamil 5-1 in the ongoing Adado tournament cup underway in the Interim Galmudug headquarter town.

The youthful team playing their third match in the tournament mesmerized local fans with tantalizing and talented soccer display which served well their good intention of publicizing the project.

Up to 8 teams are participating in the soccer tournament.

The win took the Tabar wadaag project team top of their group with 6 points from three matches played so far.

Mohamed Hassan Mohamed alias Inkir, a project staff of the implementing agency, Center for Peace and Democracy – CPD who plays for the team as a striker was among the notable players that frustrated the opposition defense with a series of masterpieces and assists during match played on Friday afternoon, September 30, 2016 at the Adado main stadium.

The team beat Tookiyo 2-1 in the previous encounter with Inkir leveling the score before providing the assist for the winning shot.

The Tabar Wadaag project is a development intervention that will implement projects in several Galmudug Administration districts using the community driven development approach. The project is funded by the Somali Stability Fund with community participation and its implementation facilitated by Center for Peace and Democracy (CPD) in Adado and Hobyo districts of Galgaduud and Mudug regions respectively. Two other agencies are implementing the same project in Abudwak and Balanbale districts.

In Adado, the community prioritized upgrading of the local district hospital to a referral facility while in Hobyo the community chose construction of the local airport as their top most need.

CPD has already concluded the community consultation process, trained the task force that will oversee the project implementation. The organization has also came up with the designs for both projects.

The task force is now in the process of initiating community contributions ahead of the project implementation.
