Teacher Diannis from Long Island City NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Basketball Dreams

My students need standing objects to visually understand the offensive plays; visual learning is 80% of human understanding. I will need basketballs so each student can fully participate.

My Students

My school is in need of sports equipment. Anything will be appreciated at this point. I am in the process of creating a basketball team as well as 3v3 tournaments throughout this school year and in need of basketballs and specific instructional equipment.

I would love to be able to introduce the game basketball to students who love the sport but cannot afford to be a part of the sport.

My school was the middle school of Meta World Peace and we would like to keep the legacy going with future students entering the NBA. With the right equipment the students can get the experience they need to achieve their future goals

My Project

Donation to this project will not only help our school have a great basketball unit during physical education class, but will help myself create a great after school basketball program. I believe with your help, we can accomplish a successful basketball program. The equipment will help us become better at the sport the students already enjoy and love. This project will make a difference in many students lives that have nowhere to go after school. I will be starting an after school basketball program that will let the students have a place to practice a sport they love and off the streets.
