Good afternoon,

My name is Michael Gallus. I am the Pakistan Womens National AFL coach and Assistant AFL Pakistan National Men's coach and I am about to be the first ever AFL coach to visit Pakistan to develop the game and run clinics.

Please find the up coming itinerary attached for this world first AFL coaching/education and humanitarian trip to Pakistan by an Australian which will start tonight when I fly out.

My focus on this trip is to develop AFL across Pakistan and further champion the rights and equality for women in sport in Pakistan and further strengthen Australian and Pakistan relations all via the power of sport.

I am the Pakistan National Womens AFL coach and about to become the first ever Australian Football coach to travel to Pakistan to run AFL football training and coaching sessions with Pakistan Males and females across 5 cities.

I will be engaging in humanitarian volunteering with the Smile Again foundation with women who have suffered acid burns from domestic violence and with UN Pakistan Disability Ambassador Muniba Mazari.

I will be also running University lectures on my role as National Womens Pakistan AFL coach and my role in sports diplomacy through footys4all and strengthening ties between Australia and Pakistan.

I also have a confirmed meeting with deputy Australian Commissioner to Pakistan Brek Bately and have a request in to meet with Prime Minister Imran Khan.

I will be distributing Footys4all footballs, soccer balls and volleyballs to Pakistani kids as well as Australian and Pakistani Flags, Footys4all books to improve english and Hygiene products to women from Melbourne Pinchapoo Charity.

Appreciate your support as all that I am doing is as a volunteer.
