A non-governmental advocacy group for indigent children and sports, Hand2Hand Foundation will round up its awareness of the promotion of ‘War Against African Time with a Cadet Handball Tournament for Under 12 and 15 Boys and Girls at the Old Parade Ground, Area 10, Abuja on Thursday.

The tournament is a culmination of a week of engagement of orientation on academic discipline and time consciousness in sports.  

The organization has been championing the crusade of giving the less privileged children in society a new lease of life through education and sports.

Nine Abuja-based indigent students have been offered scholarships, to bring to 18 the total number of children of primary and secondary school age, enjoying the scheme that scouts for the less privileged children, pays their tuition, procures books for them, and ensures that they are mentored to excel in their academics.  Those gifted in sports are encouraged to pursue their dreams.

At the 2024 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the foundation held at Ventures Park, Abuja, the founder of the NGO, Richard Agbonifo, urged the kids, some of whom were accompanied by their mothers of the essence to develop in their academics, physics and psychomotor (sports).

Agbonifo tasked students to embrace academics and choose a sport, saying Hand2Hand will support them all the way.

“I want to appeal to parents to encourage their children to do sports and let us know when they need assistance. Be accountable by ensuring that you give us receipts of payments made for tuition fees and books. The government should support children in sports, by providing facilities ensuring that training is in their weekly curriculum; and holding regular competitions. Put people who care about children to take care of these issues.  Collaborating with Hand2Hand will help make a big difference,” Agbonifo said.
