Alexforbes empowers youth through basketball

Employee benefits group Alexforbes has partnered Namibia’s Technical Basketball Academy (TBA) to empower young individuals by supporting their growth through sports and life skills training. 

The TBA is making waves on the outskirts of Windhoek North with its after-school sports programme. 

Founded in 2015 by Titus Mwahafa, the academy has become a beacon of hope for pupils aged 7 to 19. With a strong focus on basketball and life skills training, the TBA aims to empower African youth and nurture them into responsible citizens. 

With a rich history dating back to 1935, Alexforbes is a trusted name in the Namibian financial services industry, known for delivering insightful advice and impacting people’s lives. 

“The academy aligns with Alexforbes’ core values of connecting with clients and delivering solutions that have a meaningful impact on people’s lives,” said Nancy Maphosa, the marketing manager of Alexforbes. 

“This cause falls in line with our purpose. As Alexforbes, we have shifted towards connecting with our clients, pioneering insights to deliver advice and solutions that impact people’s lives.” 

The TBA officially opened its doors in February 2015 and has grown from an initial intake of 30 students to a diverse membership of 120 athletes from across Africa. 

This remarkable growth has solidified the TBA’s position as one of Namibia’s largest and most influential sports academies. 

The TBA goes beyond basketball training, offering a range of programmes designed to enhance the overall development of its student athletes. 

Alongside basketball coaching, the academy provides a “let’s study” programme, entrepreneurial leadership training, leadership talk series, mindset and fitness programmes, as well as media and fitness programmes.

 By offering this holistic approach, the TBA ensures that its athletes receive a well-rounded education and valuable life skills that will serve them beyond the basketball court. 

By supporting the TBA, Alexforbes is actively contributing towards changing the lives of children and shaping a brighter future for the youth of Namibia and beyond.
