African Grassroot Hoops was established in November 2014, and registered as a non-profit company (NPC). The aim was to bring basketball to underprivileged areas in Cape Town, and surrounding areas, by building and/or revamping public basketball courts. By building and rebuilding basketball throughout South Africa we will have a positive influence on a large number of youth, while simultaneously creating a platform to be used in life development. By this we are setting them on a path to a productive adulthood.The focus is on young and impressionable individuals. We believe in empowering basketball clubs to be self-sufficient by holding them strongly to our philosophy to learn how to fish.
