2016 was our first year working in the Kisumu community. The program runs in four separate villages and have garnered a wide level of support from the community with some even hosting basketball events for free. In Kajulu, the activities are hosted at the Blue Cross Kenya, a street children rescue center. Blue Cross Kenya has a basketball court has a basketball court as part of their facilities and welcomes kids from both Hoops For Kids and the community as a whole to play there.
Since many kids from the community play along side our participants, we have been able to expand our reach to a large number of boys and girls who wouldn't otherwise have known about Hoops For Kids.
TAG has reached seven schools with 108 sessions and an average of 40 kids during each clinic. Next year, we will be expanding to an additional 3 schools, bringing the total to 10 schools in Kisumu.
