EDUCATION

BASKETBALL 

Basketball is the hook we use to engage youth in our programs. Our basketball curriculum is tailored to each student's level, from beginner to advanced, and teaches youth fundamental skills and team-based concepts. We also train local youth coaches in our dynamic basketball + life-skills curriculum.

GENDER EQUALITY 

Young girls across Sub-Saharan Africa face disproportionate educational opportunities.  We maintain a 1:1 boy:girl ratio for all programs, and provide female-specific empowerment workshops for both girls and boys.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP 

Today’s African youth will shape their country’s future.  We use the basketball court as the context to teach valuable life skills.  All students receive life skills training in: communication, citizenship, discipline, self reliance and teamwork.
