Thank you for your generous donation in support of the Timeout 4Africa Foundation. Our basketball clinic extended over 1 ½ weeks filled with activities to develop basketball skills. We had over 500 kids from 12 secondary schools compete and attend the educational clinic. Approximately 350 kids participated in the grand finale and award presentation ceremony. Fifty of youngest participants received award prizes from the Washington Wizards. All attendees received a Timeout 4Africa drawstring bag with school supplies. Competitions included interschool competition, free throw contests, 3 on 3 contests and 3 pointer-shooting contests.  All winners received game jerseys, basketball sneakers, and basketballs. Trophies were awarded to the most improved player, most valuable player, and the winning secondary school. Additionally, over 500 Timeout 4Africa t-shirts were shared with parents, teachers, and community spectators.

Mr. and Ms. Ehis, parents of one of the participants, expressed their gratitude appreciation for the work that Timeout 4Africa is doing in the community. Additionally the parents were thrilled to share that the Foundation has positively impacted their son and provides added encouragement for him to perform better in school.
