CALLING ALL ALUMNI
Sign up and receive access to exclusive programs and opportunities. If you have participated in an official Giants of Africa Camp or Clinic between 2003 – 2021, this program is for you!
Launched in 2021, the GOA Alumni Grant Program encourages our alumni to create change within their own lives and communities as they walk the path to becoming future leaders.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH GRANT
Giants of Africa knows that youth can create lasting, meaningful change in their communities. This grant will support alumni in bringing a community-focused initiative to life. Whether it is organizing a local food drive or hosting a sports clinic for young children, the goal of the initiative must have a positive impact on their local community.
Giants of Africa understands the importance of education as a contributor to personal growth and success. In our ongoing efforts to make education more accessible to youth on the continent, Giants of Africa is providing alumni with grants that will assist in furthering their education. The grant funds can be used towards required expenses such as education tuition fees, required textbooks and supplies.
CONTENT CREATOR GRANT
Bringing communities together is critical to the success of the work we do at Giants of Africa. This grant will allow the selected alum to unite their online community and foster their creativity by providing them with access to key social media tools, best practices, and mentorship. The grant funds can be used towards social media content creation related expenses.
Giants of Africa believes that life experiences are a big part of education, and as such will be offering alumni an opportunity to work alongside GOA coaches and staff at one of the basketball court unveiling trips in Africa this summer. The chosen individual will learn the importance of hard work, teamwork, helping others, punctuality, and much more.
BASKETBALL PROGRAM GRANT
Hosting basketball camps and skills development for youth across the continent has always been at the core of Giants of Africa’s mission to activate, educate and unite African youth. New for 2022, this grant will provide funding for alumni to develop and host their own basketball camp, tournament or program in their community.
