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.

In addition to running regular activities and programs surrounding sports, health, and education, HCI also coordinates events to address important issues.
