The problem is youth in Northern Nigeria lack basic school supplies and recreational facilities to play sports. Consequently, many children are uninspired and lack motivation to stay in school and reach higher goals.


Providing youth with school supplies, basketball and life skills will provide a platform for them to become model citizens. Children will learn that education and team sports can help their social attitudes towards working together for the betterment of selves and their community. Education coupled with the sport of basketball promote collaboration, teamwork, and critical thinking-all skills needed for 21st century success.

Long-Term Impact

The program is designed to provide school supplies, basketball, and life skills to over 500 youth throughout the year. this program will provide students with skills needed to become model citizens who can make a positive impact on their community. Additionally, the program will help build positive relationships amongst parents, communities, and schools. The program will also expose kids to academic institutions with the possibility of earning an academic or sports scholarship.
