ASR Africa, Africa ER partner on life skills for sportsmen
The Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative has partnered Africa ER, a medical team of first aid experts and trainers, to equip basketball players in Nigeria with life skills.
The training organised by Hotcoal basketball, Hands of Care Project and Cornerstone Foundation in Abuja seeks to address some health-related issues faced by basketball players.
Speaking during the training, the Managing Director, ASR Africa, Ubon Udoh, commended the facilitators for providing a platform for the kids to access mentorship, learn life skills and imbibe discipline through basketball.
Udoh said a second batch of the training would commence in a few weeks to accommodate others who didn’t have the opportunity to participate in the first batch.
He said: “I want to thank you all for the quick response and active participation in the preparations and implementation of this training. Feedback from both participants and trainers already shows how impactful the training was. The second batch of participants for training will be nominated and trained in the coming weeks.
“Trainees were assessed with a pre and post-training test and certificates will be presented to successful trainees. African ER is a highly rated first aid training institution in the West African region and we were very fortunate to partner with them and have them send their top consultant doctors for the sessions. The certificates also, therefore, carry the same value.”
