The Way Forward

THE BB4P WAY FORWARD

 THE BB4P SYSTEM FOR YOUTH TRANSFORMATION TRAINS YOUTH IN PEACE MAKING SKILLS AND BASKETBALL FUNDAMENTALS WHILE PROVIDING THEM A WIN/LOST STIPEND ON EACH TRAINING COMPETITION DAY.

BB4P is designed to promote Community Coexistence, Education, Security (EWS), Job Creation and Basketball in an atmosphere of PEACE. BB4P encourages individuals to assume responsibility for their behavior rather than blaming others.

 The BB4P PEACE ZONE(basketball-court) NETWORK

1.) daily serve as acceptable grassroots meeting place for YOUTH and Community Residents to come togetherin PEACE, regardless the ‘issues’ dividing or troubling their Community i.e. educational levels, age, religion, tribe, political party, unemployed, etc.

2.) daily discusses the meaning of PEACE (CMM Training) for meaningful development and progress to take place; producing many Local Grassroots PEACE AMBASSADORS who are mediating in Conflicts.

3.) daily Basketball Training sessions (other Activities) and Saturday Training Competitions are encouraging excellence (Win-or-Play-Well).

4.) can be expanded/developed into acceptable Grassroots Community Centres to cater for other Community needs and can be the place where “Son’s-of-the soil” can give-back to their Local Communities.

Each PEACE ZONE is established to provide opportunities for 100 or more Grassroots Community based YOUTH; monthly inter-PEACE ZONE Competitions provide ‘win/loss Stipends’ for approximately 1000 YOUTH and support staff in each State.

BASKETBALL is Nigeria’s number two team Sport, the reason why the BB4P Network has been successful in establishing 36 PEACE ZONES and 100 PEACE CLUBS in Secondary Schools in 21 Local Government Areas of 10 Cities, in the FCT, Kaduna, Kano, Plateau, Delta, Rivers and Lagos States. There are many success stories; many of which are yet to be told, providing opportunities for Youth Development in an atmosphere PEACE.

COST can vary from two-hundred thousand naira (N200,000) to two million naira plus (+) based on the existing situations and expectations to be accomplished in the proposed Communities, LGA/LGC or STATES to be serviced.

BB4P ‘has-no-doubt’ that the BB4P System For Youth Transformation will help Individuals, National/International Organizations and Government achieve the goals of the National Youth Policy and Strategic Plan of Action for Nigeria and beyond.
