Celebrity basketball The 2013 Bless The Mic music and arts festival has kicked off with a celebrity charity basketball game featuring the likes on Van Vicker, Jayso, PY Addo Boateng, Mutombo the Poet on the BTM Dream Team.  Held at the “Culture Park” Basketball Court near the Kawukudi Park, the game was held in partnership with DUNK! (Developing Unity, Nurturing Knowledge) to raise awareness for the youth organization as well as to donate proceeds towards its aims and objectives.  DUNK! Developing Unity, Nurturing Knowledge is a Youth-led Community Based organization providing safe spaces for youth from deprived communities to grow, learn, play and socialize. Through Basketball, Life Skills Training and Mentoring & Tutoring, we empower our members to become agents of change in their communities and to succeed on and off the Court. DUNK-Developing Unity, Nurturing Knowledge was established in 2011 in Nima reaching out to 80 children. Today DUNK is working in 4 communities of Accra and in Krisan Refugee Camp (Western region) reaching out to over 450 children, employing 8 local staff and being visited by over 50 volunteers from all over the world. With as little as 10$ a month, you can also contribute to our great mission.  www.dunkgrassroots.org “Culture Park” Basketball Court –as commonly known- was built in the 80s as a way to keep youth from Nima-Mamobi from engaging in illegal activities. Over the years, many of those pursuing Basketball as leisure were hired by the Services for their Basketball Skills (Prisons, Fire Service, Police, Customs, etc). Though the facility remains, we hardly see children and youth using it. However the place is always vibrant and full of young ones. Some would be selling, some would be climbing trees and doing acrobats on big stones, some would be riding bicycle and many would be playing football. These activities not being monitored, not a day passes without a fight and most times, many fights.
