Sports despite social distance
Aug 28, 2020

Exactly a year ago, we hosted a basketball training camp on our new outdoor surface located next to the artists’ residency and cultural center, Thread.

Each day, children came from three surrounding villages—Dialico, Koar, and Ngene—to learn new skills and techniques from Coach Maissa Fall and Coach Keita from Morocco.

Today, while, we cannot gather in large groups due to Covid-19 restrictions, athletes are still taking to the court on their own time, and with proper sanitation measures in place, to remain active.

The court has been a crucial outlet in a difficult time for everyone, when the normal routines of life have been disrupted. We are hopeful that we will be able to resume hosting sports workshops next year, and if you’d like to support them, please consider making a donation.
