~ Because Every Kid Can Inspire The Next ~

Good day, my name is Emil Acolatse, CEO/Founder of F.I.R.E. I would like to personally thank you for taking the time out to read our proposal of support for our organization and the communities or Ghana. The Inspiration Weekend 2020 was a success as we were also able to register a chapter of the organization in Ghana. Last year with the help of so many supporters and donors in the United States and Ghana we were able to collect, ship and distribute donations of sneakers (1,714), books (3,261), basketball jerseys (100), shorts (130), basketballs (100), and T-Shirts (350) were personally provided to the following institutions and villages in Ghana:

DUNK Center: Jamestown, AccraKorle-bu Kings: Korle-bu, Accra Galaxy Basketball: Lebanon House, AccraTusk Basketball: Adenta, AccraBasketball School Academy: Kawukudi Court, GhanaJunior Reformers: Prisoners Court, Osu, GhanaMad Ants: West African Senior High School Adenta, GhanaLost Champs Basketball: Dansoman, GhanaBenBridge International School: Ablekuma, GhanaKedzi-Agorta A.M.E. ZION Kedzi Keta, GhanaKedzi-Havedzi A.M.E. ZION Kedzi Keta, GhanaKedzi-Horvi A.M.E. ZION Kedzi Keta, GhanaChiefs Basketball Academy: Kumasi, Ghana

This year our goal was to double our efforts from last year in which we have met this goal. We also plan introduce our emerging pen-pal and literacy program, as well as begin fundraising initiative for building a community and recreational center in Mamprobi, Accra Ghana where we were able to acquire land. Our premier 3rd Annual Inspiration Weekend Tournament will be held collaboration with Daniel Laryea, FIFA head referee and CEO of Makeup Professionals on Saturday December 18th at the amazing Bayview Village Accra in Legon Ghana. With the participation of the student athletes of Ghana we will showcase their talents in basketball, volleyball, swimming and water polo.

The distribution of these donations will be provided to the schools and institutions above and as well as new locations of the underprivileged during each stop of our mission trip. We are in need of donations for shipping which is estimated at $2,400 and program expenses our 3rd Annual Inspiration Weekend Tournament which is estimated at $1,600. In total we need to raise $4,000 by December 1st. We would love to have your help and support in our mission trip which will take place December 9th – 24th.
