Basketball For Good
The International Basketball Foundation (IBF) was founded in 2008 by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA). The IBF's mission is to address the role of sports, in particular basketball, in the fields of community building, education, women empowerment, health and well-being, as well as conflict resolution.
With its Basketball For Good projects, the IBF promotes the values and cultural heritage of basketball as a vector for change and develops inclusive programs to tackle pressing issues that affect children and youth in the concerned communities.
The programs are initiated by the IBF and implemented in partnership with FIBA’s member federations, local NGOs and partners with the aim of supporting collaboration between local actors and to drive economic growth in the relevant regions.
The IBF ihas initiated 15 projects in 64 countries, benefiting over 16'000 youths.
