The Sports Envoys programs also focused on teamwork, the recognition of women’s contributions to sports, and sports as a unifying factor to counter violent extremism among youth. Participants received the opportunity to meet fellow players from across Cameroon’s diverse regions. The highlight of the program was the Junior NBA Finale and Award Ceremony for 450 youth participants held at Yaounde’s Palais des Sports on September 7, 2016. The event concluded the six-week Junior NBA program. Ambassador Michael S. Hoza joined them at that event, and held a reception in their honor that evening at his residence.
