The 16th edition of the Millennium bim Mini Basketball Tournament kicked off this month in the northern cities of Nampula, Nacala, Lichinga and Pemba. With a total of 1,220 children aged between six and 11 taking part, the sporting event aims to encourage young people to take part in sport for the sake of their healthy development and well-being.

In this edition, the event will last five weeks and will take place in 13 cities across the country: Maputo, Matola, Xai-Xai, Inhambane, Manica (municipality), Nacala, Nampula, Chimoio, Beira, Lichinga, Quelimane, Pemba and Tete. Organized by zone, the tournament will take place in 3 phases in the South, Central and North zones, to be held at different times.

The 16th edition of the Millennium bim Mini Basketball Tournament, as well as promoting sport, will include a range of recreational activities such as chess, talks on oral health, road safety and artistic expression, among others.

For the Chairman of Millennium bim's Executive Committee, João Martins, this is an initiative that is "very important for developing healthy habits in children and young people, and also acts as a platform for promoting national sport and the technical teams and monitors involved in the project. We are proud to be actively contributing to these children's education, in a fun initiative that brings with it human and social values such as empathy, solidarity and the spirit of teamwork".

The Millennium bim Minibasket Tournament has been a vehicle for transmitting values, principles and references to names that could stand out professionally in national basketball and beyond.

This initiative is part of Millennium bim's "More Mozambique for Me" Social Responsibility Program, which has been implementing various social, cultural, sporting, environmental and educational initiatives for the social well-being of Mozambicans, with an emphasis on children and young people.
