“Basketball represents hope. Hope for a better community, a better life and a better tomorrow.” – Brian Ziruel
The #BuiltWithin journey continues as we travel across the continent to connect with youth and community leaders excited to learn more about basketball and the bridge it can build in creating a brighter future for the next generation.
A total of 20 courts across the continent have been built since 2021 under the ‘Built Within’ initiative, a multi-year, 100-court commitment
The landscape of sports in Africa is changing and showing the importance of nurturing youth in sports could help produce some of the best athletes in the nation and recognize sports as the massive economic growth driver on the continent.
The GOA Summer Tour 2022 was memorable and we are motivated to contribute to programming and court building across Africa.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo we revealed a new court in Mbuji-Mayi, the home village of Dikembe Mutombo, at the Samuel Mutombo Institute of Science.
The GOA team worked hard to ensure that everything was prepared for our 15th court under our Built Within initiative and we greatly appreciate the support of our partners at the Jess and Scott Lake Foundation that helped us to make this possible.
