Located in the Brazilian state of São Paulo. The Institute offers a completely free program for children and youth of ages between 7 and 17, which aims at democratizing access to quality sports at an early age, promoting basketball as a path to human development, and boosting citizenship and social transformation.
Using basketball as a tool for education and social inclusion, the Janeth Arcain Institute has contributed to the lives of more than 8,000 boys and girls in 5 cities in the states of São Paulo and Paraíba. They have added the mission of opening a new location in Bayeux (PB), in the poverty-stricken neighborhood of Mutirão, which lacks opportunities for children and teenagers.
The Institute reaches over 700 children annually since 2002. To contribute to the Hoops for Hope campaign – click HERE
