In Late February, the Hoops Zim Team received some wonderful news from Michael Brooke, Public Diplomacy Officer from the US Embassy in Harare, Zimbabwe. 16 year old MVP Francisca Sekete was selected and approved to participate in the NCAA Women’s Final Four Program in the USA! She will be one of three young players from Zimbabwe traveling on this program.
Francisca will fly the Hoops 4 Hope banner high as she gets a once in a life time opportunity to visit her dream land – the USA. Thanks to the USA Embassy in Zimbabwe, the efforts of Michael Brooke, and our own hard working & change maker -Mark Crandall. Francisca was all smiles on hearing the news. She is ready to play her ambassadorial role for Hoops 4 Hope, family and country. Go Fra! Go H4H!!!
