Spotlight On Social Media: Summer Edition

Summer is almost over, with most players already reporting to training camp. But before the season begins, we decided to see what everyone was up to during summer vacation.

UNICS forward Maurice Ndour went home to Senegal, where he visited several basketball academies and was amazed by the conditions

Back to the roots. Today, I had the opportunity to go check out some of these basketball academies in my hometown, talk to the kids and inform their coaches about my Basketball Camp. Man…. just swipe through the pics and see the conditions in which these kids are playing, Look at the basketball courts, the basketballs and shoes. Today I saw somebody practicing in flip-flops because that’s how much they love playing the game. What can we do people? I know there are kind hearted people out there who can join me in this fight of making our communities better by creating opportunities for the kids to fulfill their dreams,by equipping them with the proper tools and education. This is how we can contribute to the development of Senegal 🇸🇳 of Africa. Africans arise and be strong!!! — — — — — — — — — — — — — Retour aux sources. Aujourd'hui, j'ai eu l'occasion d'aller voir quelques académies de basket-ball dans ma ville natale, de parler aux enfants et d'informer leurs entraîneurs de mon prochain camp de basket-ball. Man …. juste regarde les photos et voit les conditions dans lesquelles ces enfants jouent, Regardez les terrains de basket, les ballons de basket et les chaussures. Aujourd'hui, j'ai vu quelqu'un s'entraîner en sandales parce que c'est à ce point qu'ils aiment jouer au jeu. Que pouvons-nous faire les gars? Je sais qu'il y a des gens généreux qui peuvent se joindre à moi dans cette lutte pour améliorer nos communautés en créant des opportunités pour que les enfants réalisent leurs rêves, en les dotant des outils et d’une formation adéquate. C'est ainsi que nous pouvons contribuer au développement du Sénégal, de l’Afrique. Les Africains levez vous et soyez forts !!!
