Basketball for Development General Assembly 2013

The Basketball for Development General Assembly took place the 24th of November at the BBFD-Headquarter in Lich/Hessen. Beside many internal topics and very constructive planning sessions we were able to welcome two new member for the Basketball for Development team.

With Robin Kaltenbach an Mario Haas two very experienced and motivated young development specialists joint our NGO. Both of them worked already succesfully as project manager for Basketball for Development. Both now Cameroon from a long term stay.··

On of the main topics of the assembly was the integrating of the very precious experiences of Dr. Horst Strohkendl in our project work. Dr. Strohkendl is not only on of the most recognized specialists in wheelchair sport with decades of experience but also the inventor of the point classification for wheelchair basketball which is used internationally and a recognized world standard. ·Dr. Strohkendl has worked in many countries worldwide for example in wheelchair basketball projects in Uganda and Iran.

A team of Basketball for Development members was able to meet Dr. Strohkendl in October in Cologne. In a very interesting discussion, where Dr. Strohkendl shared his enormous experience with our friends, he signalized his willingness to support us in our project work in Cameroon by conducting a wheelchair basketball seminar week at our Basketball for Development Center in Mutengene.

Project work has started and soon we will be able to give more details.
