It can be tempting to give as much detail as possible to sell your idea but sometimes too many words can be overwhelming. Win people over by making your idea easy to understand.
Carry A Basketball Not A Blade is a community project that is running in the Borough of Newham. The aim of the project to cut down the crime and educate the young people of the dangers of carrying a using the power of basketball. Being a successful project for 4 years I would now like to expand my project to the 5 Olympic Boroughs to bring down crime number within London.
Carry A Basketball Not A Blade campaign encourages young people to say 'No' to crime and the gang lifestyle that accompanies it and take up basketball instead. It's all about breaking down divisions between youngsters from different postcodes and between youngsters and the police. By taking young people between the ages of 8 + off the streets giving them a place to do something they like and enjoy which is also productive.
