Giving back all started with just a kid from Surinam, who wanted to prove that his country has what it takes to make it. Charlon wanted to give back to his home and give back to kids that also have big dreams like he has.
Charlon wanted to create a structure around kids and youths with potential in basketball. Along with close friends, he set up a basketball program to guide, motivate and support potential in basketball. In 2015 they started a foundation for their basketball program named “One Sports”.
Every year Charlon returns home to lead the kids of One Sports in an intense basketball camp with his team of trainers. And weekly the kids train under trainers of One Sports.
Three kids of One Sports have received a scholarship to play college basketball in the United States of America. Many more of them are on their way. To follow and support One Sports in their work in Surinam, see their information below.
