Hello, my names is Gilles. I’m the captain of the mens basketball team in Nakivale.
Basketball is my passion, it’s my dream. I love playing. But if someone from the US came to see us play they might not even realize it’s basketball. Our equipment is bad and our court is really terrible.
So, my idea is to see if anyone will support our team and help us get balls – we only have one right now – shoes and jerseys for our team. We also need nets for the hoops and a fence to put around the court. The basketball court is in a busy place, and right now people walk right through our games. Sometimes bikes and motorcycles drive over the court, too. We need a fence to protect our players!
The Nakivale men’s basketball team will be at the 5k on World Refugee Day running for new equipment. We would really appreciate your support and teamwork.
