For some time now the boys has been training both on and off the soccer pitch. We have been able to have a couple of them shoot their training session so that you can see their sills level.
Currently we are still maintaining the few boys and girls who have enrolled for the program. Although we have been able to acquire things which are needed for their educational session, we are still far behind when it comes to athletic gears, especially for the girls.
We are still appealing to all donors to continue to support this project. Remember that your generous donations will go a long way in making the life of these boys and girls better.
We are also looking for inkind donation. If you would like to give in kind, kindly contact us through email for more information on how you can send in your donation. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Sports Brings Unity: The first ever beach soccer tournament supported by Hoops Care was a success. The tournament which was organize by community members lasted for a month with community teams playing mid-week and on the weekends. The tournament saw six other communities from in and around Amanful competing. The message sent across that through sports these communities can live together in peace. Every game saw the young boys who were mostly 12U displaying excellent ball skills. The final was held on May 19th between K20 from Amanful and PSG from Gejanoo. PSG won the coveted trophy with a 3-0 win. The MVP and Goal King also came from their club. We are currently having series of meetings for the 2nd tournament starting next month or early September. Stay tuned!
There are many way to get young athletes involve into education. As we are in the computer era, the present youth are fascinated about computer related activities. Nowadays you find them actively involve interacting on social networks, mainly Facebook. But social media is not computer literacy and we are taking the bold step in making sure that the participants of ETS are highly computer literate.
We thank all donors who has made it possible for Hoops care International to be able to secure two complete computer system, a printer and funds to hire a IT trainer as well as three months Internet subscription from the funds which was raise in the month of December.
The participants have shown great excitement about the purchase of these items and they made it known to Kevin, their coach, currently in the USA, who has been very instrumental in raising the funds for the project. In a telephone call he reiterate that Hoops Care was all about making sure that they get their education and that they should take it serious. He also stated that their training routine should be as important as their daily computer classes.
The participants have already started their classes according to individual time schedule. Each participant will also receive free hours of browsing daily to be able to connect with friends on social network as well as watch training videos for their workout.
We at Hoops Care is imploding all current and future donors to please continue to help in spreading the word of this wonderful initiative. Through your generous donations some street child might just become the next Bill Gate, since he has already been given the opportunity.
We would also like to take this time to ask for in-kind donations. The program is in need of soccer balls, jerseys, cones, etc. Kindly email us at email@example.com for more info on how you can send these things for the project.
