The Hi5 Youth Foundation is a professionally run sports-NGO in India, dedicated to coaching basketball and academically enriching large numbers of underprivileged youth. This multi-level, multi-faceted program teaches children life skills that allows them to experience success and prepare them for future endeavors!
A statistic, recorded from The Hindu in 2019, has proven Hi5’s students' academic excellence in their transition from high school to college. About 90% of Hi5 students graduate high school and attend college. This compares to the national average of 61% of students who graduate high school in India.The academic performance in Hi5 students displays the positive impact the Pathways to Success Initiative has served.
To carry on the academic successes of Hi5 students, Miles 2 Smile aims to fundraise money for learning devices for high school and college students during Covid-19, enabling their success off the court and continuation of academic perseverance.
