April 6th-7th brought Mark Crandall to Ohio University to present at the 8th Annual Sports in Africa Conference. Mark shared the spotlight with renowned Senegalese basketball player Astou Ndiaye-Diatta, who discussed her WNBA career, coaching at the University of Utah, running an NGO with her husband and being a super mother to triplet boys.
Astou’s hoops career is going full circle to help young people and communities face challenges back in Senegal. The conference brought together an amazing group of passionate and diverse experts in sports and development, all of whom are creating sustainable solutions, challenging the models, providing needed research and building valuable networks in our important field.
Thank you to the Sports Marketing students who Crandall has been lecturing via Skype from Long Island who have created a campaign to help us at H4H raise needed funds through a unique sustainable partnership!
