Over the past year, HCI has been running daily football and basketball practices for youth led by staff members. Recently, HCI has partnered with Holy Child, a nearby senior high school, to use their football field for practice in the afternoons. It is a very nice, well-kept field and HCI feels very fortunate to be able to train its players there. Emmanuel Kamblah, the administrative advisor, has been leading practices, and works hard to manage the large group of Cape Coast boys that show up each day wanting to play. He runs drills and scrimmages, along with speaking to his players before and after practice about HCI’s core values: commitment, honesty, and integrity. The boys are also strongly encouraged to come by the HCI office frequently to do homework and practice reading and writing skills

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
