Our PROJECTS

SPORTS - BASKET BALL

The DUNK Basketball program is the cornerstone of our organization and has allowed us to appeal to children from the communities we work in. We find abandoned community spaces and refurbish these into a safe and inclusive play zone.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Our academic-support program allows us to identify at-risk children and to enroll them back into local schools. Once the children are committed to the sporting activities we provide, we then introduce them to our after-school classes.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

Our women empowerment project focuses on giving vocational skills to young and single mothers to be more independent and self-resilient. The project also aims enlighten these women on their sexual health and choices through our partners.

LIFE SKILLS TRAINING

Our life-skills project aims to stimulate our member’s social and cognitive development through sports based like approached. Through this, members are able to have open dialogue about community issues, be aware of themselves and learn work together to reach a common goal.
