Wesley Girls Basic School, winners of beach volleyball event

Alexandra, an American volunteer with Hoops Care has been for the past four weeks interacting and training girls of selected HCI partnered school in volleyball. They practiced on the beach which is a close proximity to the basketball court at the Victoria Park in Cape Coast, on the Oasis Beach Resort beach.

On Friday, four teams comprising of over thirty girls from Morning Star, George Ekem Ferguson and Wesley Girls Basic Schools took part in the first beach volleyball event organized and supported by Hoops Care.  The essence of  this event was to encourage fair competition and increasing the participation of girls in sport.

Wesley Girls emerged winners for the first edition. The sports master of Morning Start expressed  his gratitude to Hoops Care for the competition sighting that the basic school games was just a fortnight away thus knowing the weakness of his team. Most of the girls in attendance asked for more visits by HCI staff and volunteers to help them in their preparation.

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
