Hello Donors,

Thank you for your donations that have been helpful in the implementation of ongoing projects in Africa. This update is to inform you of another completed project at Habib Shuaibu Youth center in Minna, Nigeria. We have completed a renovation of the youth center basketball court. The renovation included the installation of the refurbished basketball posts, new rims and backboards, and total resurfacing of the floor.

It was a great day in June 2019, when the court grounds was presented to the Cordinator at the youth center. A match was played amongst the school kids in the area. A few parents where also present to witness the occasion.  

Around 10 Workers, 30 students,10 volunteers were involved in this project, lending time and labor over the past 2 months. Approximately 300 students and adults will benefit recreationally from the renovated basketball court.

Mr Mohammed the Coordinator at the Youth center in  Minna, extended a special thank you to TimeOut4Africa Education and Support  Foundation for renovating the centers basketball facility.  He also informed us that neighborhood kids and parents are also benefiting from the court restoration.

We will keep you posted on future projects and the impact of your donations. Please continue to support us at www.timeout4africa.com

Hello Donors,

Timeout4Africa Foundation continues to spread its mission all over Nigeria. In March our team made it all the way to Enugu in Eastern Nigeria. We partnered with Coach Chidozie and his team at the Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium grounds for our " Growing the Game" series with 100 school kids.  Our team presented Coach Chidozie with 100 T shirts,  4 basketballs, and  10 pairs of basketball shoes for the 2 day Clinic, The clinic was an instructional clinic where kids were taught life skills and fundamental basketball skills. The students were encouraged to be good citizens and stay in school, and to practice the spirit of sportsmanship when they are playing sports.

One of our student athlete Ugo was very trilled to have been selected as one of the Elite campers. He received a pair of basketball shoes and a school bag. He thanked the sponsors and coaches a great event and promised to do well in school and still make time to play basketball.

Thank you for your generous donation in support of the TimeOut 4Africa Education and Sports Foundation. We have good news to share with you! 

In November during the clinic week, We identified about 40 school boys of the ages between 9 - 12 years, to join our juniors elite team. These kids  meet once a month with local coaches and some few volunteer parents to work on both life and basketball skills. We are happy to inform everyone the we see tremendous improvement  on and off the basketball courts. During the month of August we ran clinics and matches for the kids and at the end selected the best 12 players. These 12 players will represent Minna in the upcoming inter city championship.

We are also very happy to tell everyone that another student, Gideon, from our program has arrived in New Mexico, USA to attend junior college on an athletic scholarship. We will keep you informed on his progress in his school work and his performance with the school basketball team.
