ASCEND TOGETHER SERVES YOUTH IN THE GAMBIA WHO, BECAUSE OF THEIR ENVIRONMENT AND/OR DISABILITIES, FACE LARGE OBSTACLES TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.
THEY HAVE LITTLE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN, TO LEAD, TO GIVE BACK TO THEIR COMMUNITIES, AND TO PLAY SPORTS, ESPECIALLY BASKETBALL.
Ascend serves these children in hope that they will find space to reach their full potential in
academics, society, & athletics.
Ascend's work is not limited to the basketball court, but extends into the classroom and the community. We are focused on the overall development of the students we serve, knowing that they must be equipped with knowledge, leadership, and care for others around them to truly succeed in the world.
