NBA Vice President and Managing Director for Africa Amadou Gallo Fall has been recognized for his outstanding humanitarian acts.

The player turned administrator’s works with the SEED Project was recognized at the Africa Charity Awards.

The ceremony took place on Tuesday November 21 at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg, South Africa.

SEED has been active in equipping young Africans with education and the right training to develop into role models for future generations.

The project has successfully secured African youth scholarships to high schools and universities in the United States especially.

With branches in Senegalese cities, Dakar and Theis, the project has expanded to Gambia and plans are underway for further presence on the continent.

The award winning scheme recently partnered with the NBA Africa Academy to produce the next wave of talented African basketball players.

Minnesota Timberwolves Center Gorgui Dieng is a product of the project. Fall was recently in Ghana’s capital, Accra for a brief period before jetting off to Abuja, Nigeria to headline a conference with Entrepreneur Strive Masiyiwa.
