Vokkero communication systems for handball referees in Cameroon
By offering used VOKKERO by VOGO communication kits for the training of young cameroonian referees to the ADAC, we take part in the worldwide development of sports refereeing! The ADAC, or Agency for the Development of Central Africa and french-speaking Africa, provides training for young players and young referees and participates as well in other civic activities.
Feedback from a Cameroonian referee: “The headset is a real advantage in arbitration, it’s very crucial since it enables us to communicate smoother, we don’t have to make hand gestures anymore, it’s very effortless to arbitrate like this. We encourage the initiative and hope that it will continue in this direction for all handball federations”.

The jerseys we sorted out are worn with joy and pride by their new owners.
