On the 23rd of August, Anelisa Khathazile, a MVP for the Nyanga community, left to represent not only her community but her country in Turkey for the U14 World Championship Games. Basketball South Africa (BSA) chose Anelisa as one of only two SA representatives, not just for her basketball skills but the role that she plays within her community as an MVP. Having been a participant for 3 years in the Hoops 4 Hope program in the Nyanga community, Anelisa has now graduated to become an MVP and is absolutely thriving. Her voluntary work as an MVP as shown great character strengths such as discipline and determination. Only a Grade 8 student, she is already a role model in her community, modeling the values that she teaches which are the core of Hoops 4 Hope. The seven tools are very much a part of Anelisa’s life as a student, national player, MVP and of course a daughter. She continues to exceed in each facet and has strong foundations!
Hoops 4 Hope
Since 1995, Hoops 4 Hope (H4H), a global not-for-profit organization, has been committed to supporting youth development and HIV/AIDS education throughout southern Africa by providing more than 10,000 school-age children with our Basketball / Skills 4 Life program.
“Ubuntu” expresses an ancient South African concept of unity, that every human is part of a greater whole, that I am who I am through you, and you are who you are through me. It captures in one word the combined love of all humanity.
We can’t change lives by ourselves. Every day, we have to stretch the buck further than one day before. We invite you to express ubuntu with us and the hundreds of lives we touch by getting involved with Hoops 4 Hope.
