Over the years, A1 Challenge Basketball Club has done outreach programs in secondary schools across the country.
The 2005 National Basketball League champions have travelled to as far as Nebbi, Kabarole and Tororo to equip young girls with basketball and life skills.
In the club’s objectives was a community outreach program, only limited by finances but that is about to change.
The club has received a financial boost of 10 million shillings from 1XBet to facilitate their community outreach and the first beneficiary is Bugolobi, a suburb of Kampala.
“We celebrate 20 years and one of our objectives is to build, revamp or refurbish basketball courts in communities as we bid to further promote youth development and life skills using basketball,” Carol Kisukye, the team manager of A1 Challenge told Kawowo Sports.
“We have identified Bugolobi flats as a community with many youth and we are looking to refurbish the court and give the youths in the area life skills through basketball,” Kisukye added.
At a press briefing in Lugogo, 1XBet’s Operations Manager Anthony Dhabangi said the move is intended to not only promote sports but also develop societies as well as basketball, as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.
