Renowned sports promoter and linguist, Christopher Olufojude has sent an appeal to the brains behind AdaMark Foundation For Girls (AMF4G) to extend their reach to other countries in West Africa.
While noting the giant strides already achieved by the foundation with First Bank female basketball club of Lagos and other outfits in Nigeria, Olufojude is of a view that AdaMark’s efforts would be appreciated better at the regional level.
AdaMark Foundation is a non-governmental organization founded primarily to increase societal awareness of the value of the girl-child, strengthen the girl-child’s self image, self esteem and status.
The foundation, which also seeks to empower young women through sports and education, hosted the first edition of 3X3 basketball tournament for 150 young ladies, tagged No Barriers in Sports for Girls, last year in Abuja.
In recognition of the project’s achievements, Olufojude, who also serves as West Coast interpreter for First Bank BC, urged the founder of AMF4G, Mrs. AdaMark Ogbole not to relent in her selfless service to the girl-child and basketball sports.
He said: “AdaMark Foundation is doing a pretty good job for girls in Nigeria and this initiative should be extended to other West African countries.
“I’m particularly impressed with what I saw on ground when I came here – what you’re doing for girls in Nigeria. We hope one day, you’ll extend it to the West African coast.”
