Thank you again to everyone that has contributed to the basketball project, we are happy to announce that we have listen to our coaches and families and have finally distributed some used shoes collected from friends and family in the United States.
Quality shoes have always been a problem with our kids, all games are played on outdoor basketball courts and those conditions are not the best for cheap shoes. Fortunately one of our past campers Gideon who is presently a student athlete attending Brigham Young university in Utah, USA, with the help of the basketball team put together a shoe drive for our kids in Minna. Over 100 pairs of gently used athletes shoes finally arrived in Minna first week in December 2020 and where distributed to school kids all around the basketball courts in Minna and surrounding towns. James who was one of our etile junior kid was so excited to receive the shoes he came back the next day with a friend to introduce him to the game of basketball.
Thank you very much to all our donors for the continued support of all our projects. We really appreciate it. We promise to keep everyone informed on all our progress. Please don't forget to follow us on social media @Timeout4africa. Thank you and God Bless.
