Athletic Scholarship Recipients of Prince of Peace Girls, Kumasi, Ghana

When it is time to continue on a journey which is so needed to be able to achieve in life no one is happy to get stop from doing it. That is what some girls go through in Ghana right now. They are able to go as far as junior high education but unable to continue from there.

It is why Hoops Care has been working with such selected number of girls over the years knowing one day that they will have the opportunity to continue their education through sports.

Three girls out of Cape Coast dream has become a reality! Ellen, Nana Ama and Rebecca has been given the opportunity to study at Prince of Peace Girls Senior High School in Kumasi on an athletic scholarship. The three girls will represent the schools in various sports discipline.

We are over joy about this and know that many other girls who face similar problems can receive such opportunities which come with hard work and dedication. “My daughter is so happy. I have not seen her like this before,” said Rebecca’s father when we went to tell him his daughter will be one of the beneficiaries.

We would like to take this opportunity to advice every young student to take their academic work seriously and participate in sports.

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