FIBA is a non-profit international basketball federation and is the world’s governing body for basketball as it is currently in 212 different nations. Their mission is to develop and promote the game of basketball, uniting the wider basketball community, which counts more than 450 million players and fans.
Recently, FIBA supported five new “Basketball For Good” projects which coincide with their mission as they are using the sport of basketball as a tool for positive change. One of those projects they are assisting is us at the London Basketball Association as they have noticed our continuous effort in inflicting social change. FIBA has sent Molten basketballs to the LBA that will be used to grow the impact of our projects and give a new momentum to our activities. We are excited and grateful for this opportunity and to be one of the five new programs that have FIBA’s support. Among the LBA there are four other projects they are assisting that include Shooting Touch in Rwanda, Instituto Superacao in Brazil, Dimbali in Senegal, and Mawuvi Basketball Fellowship located in Ghana. All programs have one thing in common and that is using basketball to reach positive social change. A detailed description of the LBA is to be posted on the FIBA website in the upcoming weeks that will highlight our mission which is to inspire Londoners to develop a habit of getting involved with the conglomerate of basketball in order to benefit from it on many different levels.
We have been communicating with FIBA over the past year, and made a strong connection/partnership to help achieve our goals. FIBA helped sponsor us by providing us with 100 basketballs! Now we have an exciting project lined up soon, stay tuned and keep a lookout coming later this year…
