In 1995, Babacar Sy - a 20-year-old young Senegalese college student-athlete living in Paris - lost his 22-year-old sister tragically. She had left behind a brilliantly written project based on knowledge transmittal. Babacar used his passion for basketball and his soon-to-be developed educational and sports global network to transform the concept into what is now an effective and sustainable social leadership program named 'Giving Back.
The last 20 years, through our sports for leadership programs and 8M$ of college scholarships, more than a hundred student-athletes became social leaders. These goodwill ambassadors have pledged to 'never forget where they come from ...' They are the organization's most active intrapreneurs by creating social development opportunities for the young generation thus keeping the concept sustainable.
Giving Back allowed Hamady Ndiaye to graduate college and enter the NBA in 2010 against all odds.
He is now Giving Back's vice-president
CHALLENGE & RESPONSE
GIVING BACK IS A PROVEN POVERTY REDUCTION SYSTEM THAT WILL BE TAUGHT AS AN ONLINE CURRICULUM TO ONE MILLION YOUNG WOMEN
In 2014, the richest 1% of people in the world owned 48% of global wealth, leaving just 52% to be shared between the other 99% of adults on the planet
For 20 years, we have given access to free advanced education to disadvantaged student-athletes from France, Africa, and the West Indies. 95% of those developed ambassadors reinvest in 'Giving Back' by leading and/or supporting the organization and developing innovative sustainable ecosystems designed to end poverty around the world.
Women Entrepreneurship Academy
The same system created with student-athletes in now implemented for young social businesswomen from West Africa. In the 'Grow Academy', young women are given access to advanced training and education, empowered to lead social ventures and taught to give back, how to mentor and support the next generation. Each young woman will create an open online curriculum of her solution. In 2022, more than 500 effective social curricula will be accessible to future entrepreneurs.
