Basketball Plus has changed the way many Fijian’s think about their diet and exercise. Programs including Hoops 4 Health and Mum’s a Hero have increased participation in the community and encouraged Fijian kids to think about healthy choices.
The programs deliver high-quality basketball clinics and activities that increase participation, positively impact gender equality and address issues of poor dieting and non-communicable diseases. These programs are supported through the Australian Government’s $29 million Pacific Sports Partnerships program.
FBA’s Basketball Plus has also recently partnered with a mental health awareness group to expand their Mum’s A Hero program curriculum.
Basketball Plus is becoming widely known as an authority on using sport for development in the Pacific region.
