1000 Hoops to be made for The Hoop For Hope Campaign

Each one teach one the 3rd Fish - When you teach a man to fish, he can feed himself for life, once he teaches someone else to fish, the community will eat for life. The Hoopsters role is both in the development of age appropriate hoop activities aligned to the Life Orientation and Physical Education curricula in the school, and training teachers and Community support members in the coaching techniques to ensure the circles keep spinning and creating joy!

In August 2019

PicknPay and Mastercard sponsored a Hooping Initiative at 4 schools in Soweto

Program objectives:

  • Change Awareness for educators
  • Change readiness for learners

The principals were made aware of the organic nature of the program

  • Hoops are made from recycled bottle tops
  • Collecting bottle tops is a starting point to fully engaging the school and the community in the change process
  • Etandweni Primary School principal jumped into the circle and collected 12000 bottle tops towards a hoop per child objective
