Hoops Care International main focus is on the promotion and encouragement of youth sports.  Youth sports programs by Hoops Care International included running after school sport clinics, running sport programs within our partner schools and well as holding different tournaments for the youth.  Youth sports greatly impact the community in main different ways. Through youth sport programs kids are able to interact with other kids from their community. With the different sport programs these kids are put through challenging situations and have to learn to problem solve and work together in order to be successful.

Girls Girls Talk is another program that has been implemented by Hoops Care International.  The main goal of this program is youth education.  These talks take place every week where women are able to come and educate young girls about a given topic.  These topics range from different health issues to good tips to succeed in school.  Hoops Care International believes that one of the most powerful ways to learn is when you are learning from your peers.  The Girls Girls Talk also provides a safe and welcoming environment where all questions can be addressed and these young girls feel comfortable gaining information and asking questions.

Hoops Care International also participates in Women Entrepreneur Training.  This training included teaching women how to dye batik fabric.  The goal of this training is to teach women different skills.  With the perfection of batik fabric dying these women can then learn how to be self sufficient.  One of the projects that Hoops Care International is working on is the opening of a store where these women can sell their products.
