Hoops and Hops Basketball Camp
Hoops and Hops Basketball Camp - The purpose of this initiative is to provide youth within Yaounde the opportunity to participate and learn through a free basketball camp. Not only will this camp provide a fundamental basketball skillset it will also provide life skills, encouragement, and support. Thirty youth ages 12-16 will be selected to participate and provided with this three-day opportunity in 2017.
Kicks for Kids Cameroon - The purpose of this initiative is to give basketball and athletic shoes to kids in need within Cameroon (primarily through the Hoops and Hops Basketball Camp). Many children within Yaounde come from underprivileged families and my donation will be just a small relief to the families. In Cameroon a pair of sneakers costs around $65.00 while the average household income in Yaounde Cameroon is $444.00 per month – it is hardship for families to invest in such a leisure, but provides joy, and health to those who are able to acquire them. Therefore, this collection and donation will provide smiles beyond belief to those who wish to participate in sports across Yaounde.
Any shoes that remain after giving the Hoops and Hops Basketball Campers their shoes will be provided to the Foyer Ecole Des Enfants Aveugles, Malvoyants and Abandonnes orphanage.
Total anticipated budget: $2,622.27 ($87/camper)
