Fifth Annual “Basketball Against Drugs” Event a Triump


For the past five years, the Dangamvura basketball community has heeded the call to do something about the rampant drug and alcohol abuse in their community.

Thus, Basketball Against Drugs- an annual, New Year’s Eve festival was born- and grows bigger each year. We are honored to be one of their many partners.

“The narrative about ma “ghetto yut” tends to be that they are passive about their communities at best, if not destructive. It is all the way false. This New Years Eve, boys dzangu dzepaDangamvura hosted the fifth annual ‘Basketball Against Drugs’ event- and its getting bigger.

Away from the admirable cause, I wish you would see the collaborative process that makes this possible. From purchasing the needed paint out of pocket to being up at 5am to set up, to a fundraising effort of international proportions; simply remarkable”
