eCampus LLC Chief Executive Officer Cecil Nutakor has described TUSK Foundation as the perfect EduSports Project pilot beneficiary.
He said this in an exclusive chat with Basketballghana.com in the lead up to the launch of the Project at the Adenta Court later today at 14:00 GMT.
EduSports is a unique program geared towards enhancing academic performance of student athletes via the eCampus online platform that provides subscribers access to extensive teaching and learning materials.
The project was born out of a partnership between eCampus LLC, RITE Sports Limited and TUSK Foundation, a youth basketball program.
Addressing the choice of TUSK Foundation as the initial beneficiaries of this project, Nutakor stated:
“TUSK Foundation works with young people…they’ve done that investment (refurbishing the Adenta Court) which is a clear demonstration of their commitment towards the development of these young people so we felt that if they have done that level of investment within the sports side, we should step in absorb the education role and take it to another level. They won the league a year before so it’s a perfect candidate to run this”.
TUSK won the 2021 Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division II title.
