Short description:
Using sport as a vehicle for social and personal change, H4H empowers children to become productive adults, engage in healthy lifestyles, and become leaders within their communities and the world. Hoops 4 Hope provides children with daily sport, life skills and HIV prevention programming in a safe, nurturing environment in which they develop more than just skills for the court: they develop skills for life! H4H also builds basketball courts, organises leagues, distributes used athletic equipment, runs outreach coaching clinics, tournaments, and life skills training programmes. With its winning formula H4H is now reaching approximately 3,500 young people a year in South Africa and 7,000 in Zimbabwe.
