The fifth season of Power Forward came to a conclusion at the National Stadium in Abuja, Nigeria last Friday. The Government Secondary School Karu were crowned the 2018 Power Forward Champion in the boys division, with Model Secondary School, Maitama winning the championship in the girls division.

Close to 4,000 people filled up the stadium to watch the championship games, acrobatic performances of an NBA dunk squad and a performance by a music artist Simi in the presence of 2003 WNBA Champion Astou Ndiaye, and former NBA players Jerome Williams and Olumide Oyedeji.

A malaria testing station was set up outside the venue with the kids and other guests participating in the testing.

Power Forward, a youth development initiative of ExxonMobil, the NBA and the international NGO Africare, teaches health literacy and life skills such as leadership, respect and personal responsibility through basketball and other programming to positively impact Nigerian secondary school students in Abuja. Overall, through its programming the program has trained over 1300 students including 900 direct beneficiaries and 400 peer influencers from 30 schools in Abuja to date.

Last year, the program reached over 12,315 students and community members with public health messaging in malaria sanitation and hygiene education, good hand wash practices, environmental protection (tree planting).

In 2018 (January to August) the program has reached close to 12,500 youth in school and vulnerable communities with life skills information, provided more than 6,500 persons with malaria prevention strategies and treatment and established 20 hand wash stations to promote hygiene and promote exemplary leadership skills; almost 5,000 students were engaged on plastic waste management awareness campaigns with 300 female students from the 10 project schools were engaged in a Menstrual Hygiene Management Awareness program.
