Our Vision


To create a world where people from disadvantaged communities have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.

 

Founded in 2007, Shooting Touch Inc. utilizes a sport-for-social-development model that provides at risk youth and women with increased access to physical activity and education that encourages healthy habits and personal development.   

Since its inception, Shooting Touch has grown from a grassroots basketball program in Boston into an international non-governmental organization that has served over 25,000 youth and women in six different countries. Shooting Touch was founded with the goal of taking the convening power of sport to help improve the lives of those under-served individuals by using basketball to achieve three critical objectives:

1) Promote equal access to physical activity

2) Increase access to health education and health services

3) Provide enrichment to promote social change

We currently operate two signature sport-for-development programs simultaneously - one in Boston, MA and the other in Eastern Rwanda. The combined organization directly serves over 2,000 youth and women and indirectly impacts an additional 7,500 youth and women every day. Our detailed curriculum and program provide on- and off-court health education and intervention, mentorship and empowerment towards a pathway to a better future.

We serve:

Boston: Over 200 girls, ages 9-17 throughout 5 of Boston’s urban communities.

Rwanda: Over 1,300 youth, ages 7-21, and 700 women 21+, from 6 rural communities in the Republic of Rwanda’s Eastern and Northern Provinces.
