Break Time

A one day workshop organize by Hoops Care in collaboration with ten selected basic schools in Cape Coast was a success. The essence of the workshop was not to only educate the attendants on malaria but the start of the “Promoting Good Health Among Children” initiatives which will be run in these schools. The students are expected to back to to their various school and start up a club of educating their peers on malaria and other children related health issues.  They were thought on leadership skills and each got printed pamphlets to guide them on.

Selected basic schools are Wesley Girls Basic School, Philip Quaque Boys, Catholic Jubilee School, William De Graft Prep School, St. Nicholas. Junior High, St. Monica’s Girl Junior High, Police Experimental School, Philip Quaque Girls, Methodist C Aboom, and

Each school club will be given 15 bed nets each to start their campaign.

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
