Hope for Children International – HOCI

Hope for children International(HOCI), is a Youth centered community based Development Organization. It was officially recognized as a registered NGO in Cameroon on December 20, 2014 with registration number 09.G.3/14/1/vol.8/119/OAPP. HOCI uses the power of sports to educate, inspire and mobilize youths and communities to stop the spread of HIV, alcohol, drug use, unemployment and awaken talents, so as to ensure a smooth transition into responsible adulthood.

Sports activities are organized in which players are asked to connect their personal skills and self-discipline for a larger purpose; not only to their teams, but also to their families, to their communities, to their country, to the world and even to God.
