The Licher Golf-Club e.V. invited to the 2nd NGO golfing on September, 16th 2016.
17 teams from and around Lich competed in the tournament, which was played on the last four holes of the facility.
Allowed to participate only were members, which do not have a Handicap/Permission to play (PR), so the outcome was open and the end result exciting.
The Basketball for Development e.V. team started with four members and was able to achieve a descent third place.
On Monday, 4th April 2016, we had been invited to present our Organisation and our work in Cameroon to the Rotary Club Rosenheim Innstadt.
The Rotary Club supports charity projects worldwide and demonstrated in this way interest in our Buea/Mutengene Basketball for Development Center.
For this we would like to kindly thank the Rotary Club Rosenheim Innstadt an especially Mr. Scheidt who made this evening possible.
Saturday, the 19th of Dezember 2015, the second edition of Basketball for Development Olympic Games took places in Buea, Cameroon. Mixed teams of girls and boys and different ages spent a nice day playing, having fun and learning together. As usual coach Efon Elad Constantin integrated lots of learning games from the DUNKING-AIDS-OUT seminar while warming up and during the tournament. Something to eat at breaktime reenergized everybody for the finals.
At the end small prizes could be taken by the winners and every kid went home with some small gifts.
At this point we would like to thank our team in Cameroon and all the voluntary helpers very much for their efforts and power keeping Basketball for Development running in Cameroon. We wish everybody Merry x-mas, a quiet and relaxing time and a good start into 2016.

Still in daily use and an important venue for students, teenager and basketball enthusiasts. This is the Basketball for Development Center Mutengene in 2015.
Due to the high number of new registrations our Partner Live Word Mission International expanded the school in cooperation with their international partners.
Opened in 2011 the Basketball for Development Center in Mutengene provides space for lessons, meetings and events. The Center offers place for basketball tournaments, information sessions about malaria and HIV/AIDS prevention and education as well as environmental protection. More pictures on Facebook
The rules are simple: Anyone who wants to play basketball needs to help cleaning the environment.
An important part of Basketball for Development training is the garbage collecting. Before each traing the team takes a short trip to different places in the area and collects rubbish. This is delivered in bags at the city council. The object of this project is to strengthen the children’s sense of responsibility.
Dunking-Aids-Out is integrated into every Basketball for Development youth training coached by Efon Elad Constantin. This learned knowledge, carried by the children in their schools and families, contributes to comprehensive HIV / AIDS education in the society.
Dunking-Aids-Out exercises are an innovative example that sport is an important element in the acquisition of important life skills. Dunking-Aids-Out shows that especially basketball exercises can be a great method to inform young people about HIV / AIDS and other related issues. Learning in this way provides a platform that promotes enjoyment, cooperative learning and physical involvement of the participants.
With the help of a generous donation by World Shop in Landau preparations are currently ongoing for the long-planned Wheelchair Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop at the Basketball for Development Center in Mutengene. Our team in Buea has begun to evaluate the necessary measures at the Center. Together with the Modern Vocational Program (MVP) Workshop, which offers Wheelchair bulding and repairing in Buea, the first prototypes are built and tested. Once suitable wheelchairs can be built on budget, we will than produce the first ten Wheelchairs, test them in different workouts and continue to improve them. In the dry season 2015/2016 Project Robin Kaltenbach will leave with another wheelchair basketball specialists to Cameroon to hold a one-week training-for-trainers workshop in Mutenge on the Basketball for Development Center.
The donations received so far allows us to prepare everything very well. However, for the implementation of the seminar and other activities at the Center, we kindly ask all friends and supporters for donations.
