ExxonMobil, NBA Africa and PanAfricare have tipped off the 10th season of the Power Forward Youth Development program, which uses basketball to teach health literacy and life skills to secondary school students in Abuja, Nigeria.

The season tipped off with a basketball clinic for 200 youths aged 13-16 at the Africa International College, Kaura.

Since Power Forward launched in 2013, the program has reached more than 200,000 youth and their communities in Abuja through life skills and public health awareness seminars, malaria prevention workshops, and basketball programming.

The Chairman and Managing Director of ExxonMobil affiliate companies in Nigeria, Richard Laing stated that the initiative has provided more than $37.4 million (over N15 billion) in cash grants to partners working to develop community-based solutions in Nigeria.
