Project Africa - May 2, 2020 Hoopz to Greatness hosted an emergency event to drop off COVID-19 pandemic essential items. Hoopz to Greatness was able to help 80 children with masks, sanitizers and essentials. Under the organising of our Regional Coordinator in Ghana, the day consisted of a training on how to properly use hand sanitizer and hand-washing, face mask demonstrations and a basketball session. The kids have really grown a love for the game of basketball.
The event took place at our adopted school Lohem School in Asutsuare, Ghana, which is 40 minutes outside of the capital city Accra. Social distancing rules were followed and we were able to keep the in-person group small to help prevent possible spread. The remainder items will be passed to students the week of the event.
