The initiative is being organized by the President and General Manager of Toronto Raptors and founder of Giants of Africa, Masai Ujiri, with support from Ecobank.

It would conduct camps in six countries across Africa this summer to support the development of Basketball.

The move is dedicated to supporting the growth of Basketball in Africa. Giants of Africa will hold camps in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Botswana, and Senegal.

The camps will be held in Senegal from August 7-9, Ghana from August 12-14, Nigeria from 16-18, Kenya from August 19-22, Rwanda from August 23-25 and Botswana from August 26-29.

Giants of Africa would bring top international coaches to the continent to host the basketball camps, designed to help young African players develop and establish life goals and to refine their fundamental knowledge of the game.

In its quest to develop basketball skills coaching, Giants of Africa strives to foster participants’ development through life skills education, as part of the summer programme and also conduct local community outreach initiatives in each country it visits.

Giants of Africa was founded in 2003 to make a difference for kids in Africa using basketball as a tool.
