HCF PEACE AMBASSADORS
An ongoing program focused on creating a sustainable system and peaceful environment while spreading the awareness of peace, bridging gaps, and growing the game of basketball through our community ambassadors.
THE HCF PEACE AMBASSADORS PROGRAM
The Goals of the HCF Ambassadors for Peace are to create a sustainable system and peaceful environment while committing to educational and health awareness, sports, player and individual development. These community athletes are role models whom will be visiting orphanage/widow and less privileged homes, encouraging reading and contributing to early child development while creating the awareness of peace and helping to grow the game of basketball. We appreciate the ongoing support to keep impacting and running these empowering life skills programs.
The problems are most youth are not engage and are distracted with activities that may be detrimental to their future. Multiple youth have various positive life aspirations but are exposed to living in cities and communities with less opportunities for a lifetime. Role models and mentors are not present in the lives of these youth, leading to them taking up various responsibilities and actions that mar their future.
In 2016 HCF established the first HCF Peace Ambassador Project in Lafia, Nasarawa State, and have created further awareness in Abia and Rivers State Nigeria as a means to contribute in keeping youth informed and engaged. The program will continue to produce positive role models and community athletes who will contribute to their respective communities in creating an avenue to mentor others, spread the awareness and importance of living a healthy and peaceful lifestyle.
The long term impact to sustaining the HCF Peace Ambassadors Project will positively impact the life of countless youth who are mentally equipped to overcome adversity in order to make better informed decisions that will better their future, and the lives of those impacted. The opportunities and program awareness will aid to the personal and future professional development of these youth. Sustaining this project will require constant awareness program participation and basketball clinics, financial support, and proper mentorship.
