HOOP4LIFE BASKETBALL FOUNDATION
The Hoop4life Foundation works to bridge the gap between sports and education in Ghana and Africa through quality mentoring, scholarship education, sports services and community support. The foundation shares its vision of reaching its peak in the basketball world in Ghana and Africa. It is an indisputable fact that sports is an indispensable tool in the development of communities as well as individual lives, and that basketball makes sports accessible to all. On this backdrop, Hoop4life creates a collaborative solution for urgent basketball challenges in Ghana and Africa. The foundation believes that basketball is uniquely positioned to make a difference in communities across Ghana and West Africa because of its popularity among young people and those in the lower socio‐economic groups both in rural and urban environments. Basketball is played and enjoyed in many different formats such as low cost existing indoor and outdoor facilities. Based on this, Hoop4life strives to break the barriers that prevent people from actively engaging in basketball hence its partnership with organizations which share common beliefs and have the desire and capability to provide the needed assistance. We hope to work alongside international and local partners to improve lives through basketball by providing trainings, equipment’s, resources and advisory services so as to remove the barriers the youth encounter in their participation.
We are a group of young people who love the game of basketball and have involved ourselves in the game for a long time. Limited access to the right training equipment’s and resources has impeded our excellence in the game. We have therefore come together to help the young once coming after us to the best of our ability. We teach and train them to help them be the best players they can be, we also help them with their school work (Education) so they may have a better life. In today’s society, many children become victims of all kinds of social vices and fail in their education because they waste too much time doing nothing productive and there is no one to guide them and help them focus on things that will mould them into responsible people in society. We therefore use the game of basketball to bring them together and help them use their time productively. We aim to providing the right training, resources and equipment’s in both basketball and education to help them develop into responsible people in society. Also develop them into basketball players who will be eligible to play in the NBA and Euro League. It’s our wish to see most of our young ones in colleges in America and Europe in the most recent future.
To help develop African basketball players to gain eligibility to play in the NBA and EuroLeague.

Hoop4life is an NGO set to seek and help young people who have interests in basketball and wish to become successful basketball players in Ghana and Africa. Although the immense contribution of basketball in the development of sports in Africa and in Ghana cannot be overemphasized, yet young basketball players in Ghana hardly get the chance or the needed support to develop and grow their talents so as to reach the NBA standard, Hoop4life therefore believes in giving all young upcoming players an equal opportunity to develop just as their counterparts in the US and Europe.
Hoop4life seeks to help young players develop their talents and gain the requisite skills to excel in the game of basketball. In addition, Hoop4life expects that its members gain opportunities to enter colleges in the USA/Europe and ultimately be eligible to play in the NBA/Euroleague.
Hoop4life aims at setting up an all year long basketball camp to help young people who desire to play basketball develop their abilities to the best of their capabilities. It’s the dream of hoop4life to someday have international NBA players assist young African/Ghanaian players develop their talents. We believe African players have been left out for too long and are not getting the needed help to become the best they could be. Africa has a lot of talents and hoop4life is here to help Ghanaian basketball athletes reach their talents. Our greatest desire is that we affect all African countries help members so that basketball sees its light. Let’s all help give these young once a chance to better their lives.
