On April 13th, HCI escorted the Cape Coast Milo finalists, Mfantsipim, Catholic Jubilee, and Wesley Girl’s School, to Accra to compete in the 2012 Milo Junior Ball finals. Catholic Jubilee won an extremely close game in one of the first rounds of basketball, making a major comeback in the last minutes, to advance to the semi-finals where they met Mfantsipim in a Cape Coast battle. Mfantsipim came away with the win in a very close game that ended 13-10. Unfortunately, Mfantsipim went on to lose a tough finals game against Garrison School from Accra. The Wesley Girls dance team did a fantastic job while competing against Milo finalists from Ghana’s other regions. They had a well-coordinated routine, and made HCI very proud in their two rounds of dancing. The teams were rewarded at the end of the day with notebooks and Milo products. Overall, the day was a great success, and all three schools enjoyed traveling outside of Cape Coast and participating in a high level of competition.

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
