About

“CREATING A PATHWAY FOR YOUTH THROUGH SPORTS”

Our mission is to use basketball as a means to educate and enrich the lives of African youth. We aim to provide quality facilities, gear and coaches with the goal of growing the game of basketball within Africa. We create awareness and support for underprivileged children and young adults through our camps, which place emphasis on hard work, accountability, honest living and positivity. We strive to create opportunity not only as a player, but in other related areas – urging African youth to Dream Big.

ABOUT US

cirurgia peniana aumento Dream. It’s okay to dream, and it’s okay to dream big.

Growing up playing basketball in Africa, Masai Ujiri realized the abundance of talent in his homeland – but these players were often referred to as raw, lacking experience in the game and lacking access to coaching and facilities. Ujiri drew upon these personal experiences and founded Giants of Africa in 2003 – a non-profit organization with the of goal of changing this reality. Today the GOA Top 50 Camp has developed players at the local, national, international and professional levels. Over 80 of our campers attended high school or university in the United States, and over 100 attended university in Nigeria. In addition, nearly 20 former participants have played on junior teams in clubs throughout Europe – 30 of which have played on the Nigerian Junior National team, and nearly 55 have attended the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders program in Africa. GOA has grown to include four countries in Africa: Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and Rwanda and we look forward to adding two more in the Summer of 2016.
