Vassalli Bakering has announced plans to support basketball in Nigeria.
Vassalli Bakering is an Italian confectionery powerhouse and the company will be supporting the development of basketball in Nigeria through thirfoundation.org, a not-for-profit organisation established by Uju Favour Ugoka, Nigeria D’Tigress forward and Virginia Tech alum.
Opeyemi Ogunleye, national program coordinator for Vassalli in Nigeria, said the company’s support is its latest in line with its tradition of youth development through sports.
Vassalli and Thir Foundation will organise basketball development camps and other programs that will empower young boys and girls across Nigeria in the near future.
Ogunleye told Basketball Within Borders that thirfoundation.org will be holding a basketball camp in Enugu in July.
