WHY ARE WE DOING OUR CHALLENGE

Nigeria’s Physical Activity Scorecard shows that less than 40% of Nigerian adolescents meet international World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines which require youth to engage in at least 40 to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. Benefits of exercise promote healthy living and prevention of noncommunicable diseases among Nigerian children and youth. Most Nigerian children and youth are physically inactive and this increases risk of noncommunicable diseases and if not addressed early, cardio-metabolic problems during adulthood. Participation in sport not only promotes physical activity but is also an effective convening platform for education, awareness raising and character development in youth according to USAID.
