The Return

In July 2022, ROSS Leaders and SO Elite joined forces with South Sudanese NBA player Wenyen Gabriel to organize the highly successful Wenyen Gabriel Youth Basketball Camp in Juba, South Sudan. The camp served as a remarkable bridge between youth athletics and development, uniting communities in South Sudan and the diaspora. Throughout this incredible experience, our team engaged with local community leaders, visited refugee camps, and immersed themselves fully in Juba’s vibrant culture.
