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!
Girls Power: We have hit another milestone! Yes, and we are so excited to have girls now a part of the Education Through Soccer initiative! For some time now, girls within the communities we work with has been asking to be a part of our soccer program. We have finally have the time and schedule to include them and what an excitement it was when they were told that their training would start, which was last Saturday. For a start, they will train once a week, and have educational activities at our office twice a week. This is also coming with it's own challenge as many of these girls are also bread winners for their families as they have to go out and sell. We will keep you updated.
