Support Team SEED in the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half! At SEED (Sports for Education and Economic Developemnt), we use education and basketball to inspire more than 8,000 students and young people in Senegal (West Africa) a year. Sepcifcally we provide after-school academic, academi, basketball and leadership programs for youth (grades K-College) and job training support for local basketball coaches across Senegal.
To date, more than 100 alumni have graduated from the program and are currently working or studying in 16 countries around the world. 95% of all of our students have either matriculated to college or secured a job upon leaving SEED (only 5% of the population attends university).
All funds raised will be put in to a scholarship fund for our SEED Rise after school program. All 325 SEED Rise students receive weekly academic tutoring, basketball training, English language classes and help lead community service projects.
