OUR MISSION

We use education and basketball to develop the next generation of African leaders.

Senegal has one of the youngest populations in the world - half are under 18, approximately 6M young people - yet only 32% of students attend high school and 7% attend university.  

This is our opportunity.

Our programs are designed to inspire, empower and equip these young people with the skills they need to succeed in life. Through this, we will re-define the student-athlete model and develop socially conscious scholars that will continue to drive Africa forward. 

We currently serve more than 8,000 students (grades K-College) in Senegal, The Gambia and the United States, and train more than 50 coaches annually in Senegal.
