Shem Obiero – Basketball For Change

Date grant awarded: 10/08/2017

Basketball for Change is a project initiated by Shem Otieno and Moses Musosi. The project targets young people from the Kayole community. It aims to empower young girls and boys through sports to prevent them from turning to drugs, substance use and early pregnancy. This is accomplished by training the youth in basketball skills and life skills education. To date, four players have been selected to go to South Africa for basketball and seven players are on scholarships in Uganda at different universities.
