Kano, Nigeria 2009: IEC Materials

 

 

 

 

 

I regularly visit street basketball courts as a basketball outreach team member. I help in desseminating IEC Materials: Information, Education Communication materials to youths and spectators who come to watch basketball practice. These basketball courts are usually situated around communities that are prone to riots and religious conflicts. As ambassadors for peace, we use basketball as a tool to reach out to these people and also educate them to channel their energy towards sports and not violence.
