Afolaremi Initiative for Impact Movement (AIIM) Foundation, a community based charity organization has organised Great Ife Table Tennis Championship with a view to discovering talents at grassroots and empowering citizens.
According to the founder of the organisation, Afolaremi Bamkole Bamgbopa, the sporting event is to give sense of belonging especially to the vulnerable and persons living with disabilities in the society and empower them.
The final of the championship will hold on Saturday, December 18, 2021 at the Obafemi Awolowo University Table Tennis Gym, Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The game had started on December 16.
Named after her initiator, Afolaremi Bamkole BAMGBOPA, a young Nigerian with so much vision and passion for a transformed black race, Afolaremi Initiative for Impact Movement (AIIM) Foundation is a community based charity organization conceived to mount support and social integration programs and activities, free of charge for all individuals in targeted communities.
The initiative was officially launched on the 10th March 2018 and has since promoted its core visions and missions.
The conduct and ethics of this group is based on a true heartfelt and zest for social support for the less privileged and individuals with observed and felt educational, social, integration or professional needs.
The vision of the foundation is to provide support to school, aged, individuals with special needs, the youth through a wide range of developmental activities which include career development, empowerment, awareness programmes; adult and non-formal education, leadership trainings, community and health education, social integration programmes/activities among other potential individuals and community developing activities in Nigeria, which was later extended to other African communities in need.
The initiator believes that our society needs individuals and groups who will lend a hand and to lessen the burden on the government at all levels to make life bearable and better for the entire Nigerian citizens and all corresponding persons in Africa.
