Giants of Africa, Ujiri Foundation

November 17th, 2013.

Made my presence over the weekend in Toronto as a Giants of Africa’s Alumni in support of the Giants of Africa & Ujiri Foundation, and also, an opportunity to introduce the HarryCares Project. In sharing some of my own experiences, I was able to show how basketball can be used as a tool for success. Through basketball and with the support of those who believed in me, I am able to stand where I am today. Basketball is more than just a game — it is a tool for success. Such a remarkable event!

This event encouraged the use of Basketball as a Tool in order to pave ways towards educating young people, and further build facilities that may benefit youth in Africa.

Video: A Peace Education Project

June 15th, 2013

I published a Peace Education Project that I did with Jerome Smith and Miguel Pink on Youtube. We research and conducted interviews all around Saint Mary’s University. The participants in this video are Student-athletes, Faculty/Athletic Deparment staffs and other students of Saint Mary’s University. All participants were fully informed about the purpose of this project in regards to our Peace Education class in 2011, it was ethical!  The founder of Peace Schools International, Hetty Van Gurp was our instructor in this course (Peace Education). All participant agreed to be interviewed and were giving the option to opt out if they wanted to. We (Jerome Smith and I) wanted to know what other people thought about PEACE, what they understood, experienced and would do if they were in the position to make peace?   PLEASE click on the link below and enjoy this fun project. 

The audio quality of this video is slightly above 65%. However, the project was a great cause.
