I am Benin

Ian’s roots stem back to Benin, Africa, the place his father called home. Wanting to give back to the people of Benin, Ian is working with the U.S. Embassy and Basketball Federation to open a Resource Center there. It would provide a space for the community youth to learn leadership, the value of service and important life skills through basketball and other sports.


Founded in service, the Ian Mahinmi I AM Foundation is dedicated to giving back to the communities that Ian Mahinmi calls home. Through fundraising, community give-back events and more, the Ian Mahinmi I AM Foundation is committed to service.
