“This is a very personal project for me. I am committed to doing what I can to activate and support the young people in Africa,” West stated. 

He also added “athletics is the conduit, but it goes much deeper than that. I want to work with the communities, with leaders to bring broader solutions addressing healthcare, education, entrepreneurship and technology innovation.”

The clinic will bring together talented players from multiple regions of Ghana for a day of instruction and personal interaction with the NBA players. The Clinic will be for enthusiasts of the game between the ages of 10 and 18.

Africa All Access arose from the collaboration of David West and his partners at The African Union, a US Mission in Washington D.C., Zoetic Energy and New Generation Power International.

This group is focused on expanding the program’s mission throughout Africa.
