Black Canadian Coach Launches “Hoops for Hope” Project

Milton ON, Canada: Hope Agbolosoo is a Greater Toronto Area coach and fitness trainer originally from Ghana, West Africa. Recognizing the privilege and experience he was afforded after moving to Canada as a teen, he now seeks to build a bridge with the youth in Ghanaian communities back in his hometown.

“I often reflect back to when I was a little kid, and all the things that I didn’t have. Here (in Canada) we take so much for granted. This Project allows me to touch the lives of youth by giving them hope through sport engagement.”

What Inspired you to create the hope project?

To date, ‘Hope Fitness’ has already built 3 full length basketball courts that have become the hub for physical literacy and recreation in local communities in Kumasi, Ghana. Hope intends to build as many more courts as we can, and has launched a national fundraising campaign to support this project.
