Why Sign Up for Miles 2 Smiles?

Nelson Mandela once said, “Sports has the power to change the world”

Every child has the Right To Play sports and with Hi 5’s basketball “Hope thru Hoops” program for excellence, you empower every underprivileged child to experience a winning moment. Hi 5’s basketball program fosters CONFIDENCE, TEAMWORK and inculcates the right values to succeed in life. We, with your support, are constantly “changing young lives through play.” Hi 5 Youth Foundation has its footprint in 5 states - Maharashtra, Telangana, West Bengal, Gujarat & Madhya Pradesh. We now have over 3000 children and 40 coaches who train for around 300 days in 30 centers and we are still growing... Hi 5 started the Hyderabad, Telangana program in 2019 with 4 centers and 350 children and now after the pandemic we have expanded to 9 centers and 750 children in 2022-23. With the program expansion, we need your support to train 750 underprivileged children in various tribal residential schools, Zilla parishad schools and orphanages to accomplish the goal! The Hi 5 children from the Krushi Boys Orphanage in Medchal district in Telangana have had many “winning moments” for they never stop playing basketball.

Basketball is life to all the children in Hi 5.

It takes just $100 to support a child. Your $$ goes towards Training +Jerseys + shoes + equipment for one whole year!

Help us reach our goal!! Let’s convert Your Miles to (2) Smiles!!
