Basketball for Development Olympic Games 2015

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.

Waste gathering before every training

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 (DOA) Training

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.
