Basketball Camp Campaign
For: PUR International    
Walisubi, Uganda
Organizer: PUR International    
Raised: $ 7,500 of $ 9,000 from 19 supporters



In December we will be hosting Jess and Hallie Clark from Wasilla, Alaska. Jess is a stay at home mother of 4, and a youth basketball coach. Her daughter Hallie is a player. They will be coming to work with us and host a Basketball Camp at Nation Changers Primary School near Walisubi, Uganda. They will be working along side several Ugandan coaches and a team of older players. Nation Changers is one of the few schools in the country that offers basketball as an organized sport. We will be inviting 60 select players from all over the country of Uganda to help develop their basketball talent.

The camp will be from Dec. 12-15th. All the players will board at the school. We will provide accommodation, food, and training in both basketball and life skills. It will be for boys and girls ages 8-15. Jess and Hallie will leave Alaska on Dec. 9th. They will be in Uganda with us from Dec. 10-19th. We are so excited to offer this experience to the upcoming generation of basketball players in Uganda. Basketball in Uganda is still a growing sport, with very little opportunity for young players to develop their talent. During the camp we hope to give each player his or her own jersey and basketball. Jess and Hallie are also collecting basketball shoe donations in hopes that they will be able to provide shoes to the players that don’t have them.

The total cost for basketballs, jerseys, camp expenses, and travel expenses for Jess and Hallie comes out to $9,000. This campaign has been set up to both raise funds for the camp and to help cover the travel expenses for these ladies who have chosen to come share their talents with the children of Uganda. Please consider giving towards this event so that we can provide a quality experience for these young basketball players. 100% of all donations will be given towards the expenses of the trip and the camp for these kids.
