Golden Star Resources-a mining firm operating in Ghana- has constructed two basketball facilities in Prestea after converting a hitherto rubbish tip into a recreational center for Prestea. This facility will be used for Giants of Africa (GOA) Camp this weekend.

This year's GOA Camp is the third to be organized in Ghana after those held in 2015 and 2016. It is the first to be organized in a setting outside the nation's capital Accra. 54 young players will receive expert coaching from top trainers of the Not for Profit organization. The program commenced on October 12 and ends on October 14.

Golden Star constructed the playing surfaces as part of its partnership with the organization founded by Toronto Raptors Manager Masai Ujiri over a decade ago. This is the mining firm's first foray into basketball in Ghana.

The site where the facilities are located used to be a rubbish tip on the outskirts of Prestea which is noted for its extensive gold reserves. Constructing the edifice is Golden Star's way of giving back to the community in its catchment area.

Prior to the camp, a coaching clinic for participating local coaches was held to brief them on activities of the program.
