Unser Besuch im Löwenrot Gymnasium

Im Rahmen eines Informations- und Bildungsbesuchs besuchte der Vorstand des Vereins Hand2Hand Sport und Bildung e.V., Herr Richard Agbonifo, das Löwenrot Gymnasium in St. Leon-Rot. Ziel des Besuchs war es, die Schülerinnen und Schüler über die aktuelle Situation in Abuja, Nigeria zu informieren und über die wertvolle Arbeit des Vereins in dieser Region zu berichten.

Herr Agbonifo hielt einen lebendigen und informativen Vortrag über das tägliche Leben, die Herausforderungen und Hoffnungen der Kinder in Abuja. Er zeigte auf, wie Bildung und Sport als Mittel genutzt werden können, um positive Veränderungen in den Gemeinschaften zu bewirken. Mit bewegenden Bildern und Geschichten brachte er den Kindern die Realitäten in Abuja näher und sensibilisierte sie für die Dringlichkeit des Engagements in der Region.

Der Verein Hand2Hand Sport und Bildung e.V. setzt sich intensiv für die Unterstützung von Kindern in Abuja durch Bildungsstipendien und Sportprogramme ein. Herr Agbonifo erklärte, wie diese Stipendien es begabten, aber benachteiligten Kindern ermöglichen, ihre Schulbildung fortzusetzen und ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Darüber hinaus betont er die transformative Kraft des Sports und wie der Verein durch Sportprogramme den Gemeinschaftssinn, Teamarbeit und Selbstwertgefühl bei den Kindern in Abuja fördert.

Die Schülerinnen und Schüler des Löwenrot Gymnasiums zeigten sich tief berührt von den Schilderungen und äußerten großes Interesse daran, wie sie selbst einen Beitrag leisten können. Es wurden Ideen für zukünftige Partnerschaftsprojekte und gemeinsame Aktionen besprochen.

New Partnership with Intersport Schlenker Brings Positive Energy and Support for Underprivileged Athletes in Nigeria

If you’re searching for a place brimming with positive energy, look no further than our newest partner, Intersport Schlenker, located in Bruchsal. After learning that we could not transport used shoes or sports clothes to Nigeria, we found a like-minded partner in Intersport Schlenker to help bridge that gap. They are generously donating new sports gear to children and less privileged athletes in Nigeria. I am incredibly proud of the support and act of kindness shown by Intersport Schlenker, and I eagerly anticipate a positive and fruitful partnership. Through this collaboration, we can contribute to ensuring that children have the opportunity to be children, while also providing education and sports opportunities for those in need. Together, we are working to end child hawking in Nigeria and create a brighter future for these young athletes.

To this end, the organisation awards scholarships to less privileged children and gives children access to sport, which is not a matter of course in Nigeria as we know it here.
Be part of it! How? It’s simple. Collect sportswear and sports shoes that you no longer need but could still be used. Bring them to HSG training within the next two weeks or to the big home game weekend in the Bruchsal sports hall on 10/11 December at the latest.
