At Hustle Hard Global, basketball is not only seen as a sport, it also represents opportunity for positive social change. Many youth in Africa do not have the opportunity to experience the benefits of childhood education and athletic outlets and we believe that these students deserve the opportunity. Many Kenyan public schools are overcrowded and private school tuition is too costly for most families to afford.
