About Hoops4Hope (@hoops4hopeglobal):
Hoops 4 Hope (H4H) is a non-profit organization implementing youth development programs in schools, shelters and communities. H4H trains local leaders to deliver exciting after-school basketball programs combined with an effective HIV/AIDS prevention and life-skills curriculum.
Since 1995 Hoops 4 Hope has helped thousands of children in Zimbabwe and South Africa face the extraordinary challenges of growing up in under-served communities. H4H creates safe environments ideal for play and effective learning. Trained peer coaches play a proactive role in shaping their own communities. With two-thirds of the African continent classified as youth, sport is an important vehicle for long-term social and personal change.
Along with exciting teams and events, H4H is able to teach key strategies for decision-making and critical thinking, tackle HIV, crime, drugs, and gender inequality before young people put themselves at risk. It is a winning cycle that is helping to build leaders for today and the future. H4H has successful partnerships to support sustainable delivery of programs, and is a proud Community Partner of NBA Cares.
