Delegation from Norway in DZ

Hoops 4 Hope All Stars Sandra and Linetie recently welcomed Ostein from Norway and Angela Nyaundi of the Zimbabwe Sports Commission. When Ostein told a friend he was going to Zimbabwe, a friend of his insisted he checked out H4H action and he did just that. Ostein’s friend was part of a delegation that visited our activities in Glen Norah in Dec 2010. The Sports Commission is starting to take notice of our work here in the communities. Our hope is the relationship will grow into something meaningful. Ostein, who worked for the YMCA in Norway for close to 20 years, was impressed by how the older youths in our program continue to give back to the program that helped raise them. ‘ This is a perfect way to be self sustainable’ he remarked at the sight of senior participants that were in the group. The Sports Commission chipped in with the support for refreshments for the kids. It is our belief now that Hoops 4 Hope cannot continue to work alone in the communities. Given our organization’s sheer size, H4H would benefit from a strategic partner, like the Commission.
