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.


In 2017, we were honoured to be joined by His Excellency President Paul Kagame to open our first court in Rwanda.

We returned in 2022, under the Built Within initiative with a court upgrade and were once again joined by H.E. President Paul Kagame along with Minister of Sports Aurore Mimosa Munyangaju, BAL President Amadou Fall and NBA Africa CEO Victor Williams.
