About the Program:

This season, Anadolu Efes Istanbul is implementing its One Team program alongside ANKA Sports Club and Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Neighbourhood Houses, a sports club that provides basketball education for children and an organization that aims to meet the social, cultural economic needs of people living in various neighbourhoods in Istanbul. The primary objective of the club this season is to support the social development of 20 children, 10 boys and 10 girls, between the ages of 10 to 14 who were victims of the earthquake last February 2023 and are living in the same neighbourhood after moving to Istanbul. In addition to teaching the life skills of team building, motivation and confidence through basketball, the club is planning to invite a fitness trainer, a dietitian, a mental performance coach and a junior team psychologist to further support the psychological healing and adaptation process of the group.
