HCI had the opportunity to run a basketball clinic for the School for children with special needs in Cape Coast. The children are mostly psychologically and physically challenged, but were nevertheless eager to learn about basketball and foremost enjoying the event.

The staffs, along with volunteers Alfred, John and Charles, took the kids through easy going but exciting basketball drills. The setting was challenging, because of the special attention the kids needed, but due to a great amount of enthusiasm from the volunteers, the kids and the schools teachers, the clinic was a major success.

After the clinic, a group picture was made and many of the kids personally thanked the volunteers for their attention. The school management stated that they anticipate another visit, since the first one was widely appreciated. HCI was happy to see the event go so well, since it is one of its objectives to attend also those with special needs.

Special thanks goes out to the volunteers, Charles, John, and Alfred. Great job!

Help us raise funds to combat malaria in our communities



Hoops Care International (HCI) is a non-governmental organization located in the community of Amanful in Cape Coast, Ghana. It officially began in 2008 as a program to empower youth in the community through sports. Since then, it has grown to include care and outreach surrounding health and education. HCI works closely with youth from twelve schools in Cape Coast, along with single mothers, teen mothers, and handicapped individuals. In addition to running regular activities and programs surrounding sports, health, and education, HCI also coordinates events to address important issues. HCI has made a significant impact with its programs already, and always looks for new ways to support and empower community members
