The Rise of Basketball in Rwanda

On March 17th, over 1,000 Shooting Touch youth and women took part of our first 5k march through the streets of Kayonza, Rwanda to raise awareness for gender and health equity. Men and women marched to our annual International Women's Day tournament hosted on the (2) courts we built while over 2,000 spectators cheered on.
