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 for more info on how you can send these things for the project.
