First a little into who we are:
The Dennis Sports Foundation is an organization established in Central Ghana in the coastal city of Cape Coast. We are committed to impact, improve and empower all youths living in impoverished communities in Central Ghana. Clement Dennis and the international team has made this mission their life’s purpose and passion, to dedicate their efforts to break the cycle of Ghanaian youth falling into criminal street life activity through sports.
The Dennis Sports Foundation facilitates projects focused on education, mentorship and sports-based intervention to develop a positive self-image and self-actualization. Sports has been the core of this organization to change the direction of their community and has provided a safe space to mature and enable them to be self-sufficient and change the course of their lives: to that of a positive and purposeful direction.
Pass the ball, not the Virus - COVID-19 Community Response
In response to the recent pandemic of COVID-19, the shortage of personal protective wear, hand sanitizer and financial burden due to social distancing; we want to educate and create homemade face mask and hand sanitizer to help combat the spread of COVID- 19 in our community. We will be using local Ghana fabrics and other useful materials to make 1500 masks. We will also be purchasing items to make 1500 hand sanitizers for the community.
We know that a small gesture can make a great difference in the lives of others. Please support our efforts in stopping the spread and saving lives.
Why we need your Help ------ Official start date May 20th, 2020.
To start this program we are in need of :
Facial Mask Material ( Local cloth and fabric) 1500 pieces - $5 ghs x 1,500 = $7,500.00 ghs
Hand Sanitizer material ( rubbing alcohol and Aloe vera gel ) - $10 ghs x 1,500 = $15,000.0 ghs
= $3,600.00 cdn
Transportation for Volunteers 20 - $30ghs x 20 = $600.00 ghs
= $150.00 cdn
Gloves- Pack of 200 x 3 @ $20 GHC= $60.00 GHC

Total needed = $5400.00 cdn
Receiving donations to start this initiative would not only impact our community; it also impacts public and global health safety. Encouraging, self-health advocacy for those that are most vulnerable.
