We leverage on sports to improve leadership, engage youths, and promote mutual understanding, transferring lessons from the field; communication, respect and teamwork, into the community.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Nigeria, with an estimated population of 180 million (approximately 60 times the population of Jamaica) has never won a gold medal in 15 participations at the World Athletics Championship and only 2 at 16 Olympics games.
Thousands of young athletes train daily at various fields and centers across Nigeria but do not have access to proper training facilities, are not well fed, cannot afford supplements and do not have transport fare to get to the training venue.
