More Than A Game
The NBPA Foundation launched More Than a Game in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation. More Than a Game is a youth leadership program that takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa. A total of eight students from the United States and South Africa, received the unique opportunity to explore the intersection between basketball and social activism in celebration of the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela.
“We are thrilled to be involved in this initiative which affirms our position as trusted conveners of dialogue focusing on key issues that impact on societal justice, shared values, and the collective prosperity of all South Africans through the sport of basketball.”
CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation
