In addition to the competition taking place at the BK Arena, the BAL organizes several activities highlighting African leadership. Celebrating Africa Day and Umuganda Day which, every last Saturday of the month, mobilizes Rwandans from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. for community development activities.

We were here last year during the BAL Season 3 finale. We built this infrastructure that is dedicated to the community. It is an activity that is in line with our reason for being. The BAL is more than a basketball league. The objective is to become a locomotive of economic development. And who says that, must talk about community and social development above all. We are very proud first of all to see that the infrastructure is very well maintained and continues to be used. I heard, because I haven’t come back here since, that hundreds of young people frequent this place. And it’s going to grow, it’s going to become a real community center.” declared Amadou Gallo Fall who offered a set of balloons to the young people at the center.
