The Phoenix Suns’ (NBA) Amar’e Stoudemire Foundation organized a five-day basketball Camp aimed to support young basketball players all over Bamako city, the Malian capital city. Some young men were incredible when they had been called by the local organizer the coach Alkaya Toure, to take part in this five-day basketball camp, because initiatives like this are rare in the country. It was true! After about eight hours travel from United States of America to Mali, a West African country, one of the poorest countries in the world, the Coaches Travis King, Marcus McGee and their collaborators Mr. David Zimmerman and William Becket meet the 23 young kids for the first training part in the Stade Modibo Keita Gym. Concerning the U16 kids, the general manager of the Amar’e Stoudemire Foundation Basketball Camp, The Coach Travis King explained “This Camp is about the humanitarian actions of the Phoenix Suns player, Amar’e Stoudemire, through which he wants to help poorest Kids by giving them a chance to get to high level in Basketball and at school too. After the Camps in different part in the USA, we are decided to bring this project in to Africa, and I’m very happy to be here.” At the end of the Camp some of the best ones will be selected for the elite centers in the USA so they can get to top and be able one day to support other young Men from the continent. Over the young kids, the Amar’e Stoudemire Foundation has a vision to support the Malian Basketball which is among the best in the African Continent. All the Kids benefited Nike Basketball Shoes with Tee-shirts and Shirts of the Amar’e Stoudemire Foundation.
