About Giants of Africa

Giants of Africa (GOA) is a non-profit dedicated to improving and enriching the lives of African youth through basketball. The Built Within Tour marked GOA's triumphant return to Africa following a two-year hiatus. They traveled the continent, constructing 11 basketball courts in five countries. The Built Within Tour tells a story of community, opportunity, and how basketball inspires African youth to dream big. 

The Challenge

GOA unveiled the courts to the communities in under one month. But, that short of a timeline and amount of content would have overwhelmed our audience. A further challenge, this campaign held no paid media budget, so GOA relied entirely on organic reach to get these powerful stories out to a global audience.

The Solution

The construction of 11 courts in five countries was a massive undertaking; our strategy involved inviting our audience on tour with us. By showcasing the stories of the individual communities impacted, we produced emotional, affecting narratives. Behind-the-scenes stories of the GOA team's experience drew the audience in with intimate pieces of content. By gradually trickling out the content over a 2.5-month campaign, the individual courts had a chance to shine.


To execute, we created a series of 18 short, social-media-specific episodes that followed a storytelling framework. GOA's audience, African youth, are most active on Instagram; we adapted episodes for both feed and stories. The storytelling framework ensured we captured each community's backstory before GOA arrived, the unique features of each court, custom-designed for each community with cultural artwork, and the community impact.

The Results

The Built Within Tour was a massive success. It organically generated:
