Build Courts Not Walls is an effort to create a "hooper's paradise" in communities around the world through the renovation of public outdoor basketball courts along with the construction of water filtration devices and the installation of solar panels around the basketball court area. 

This initiative is led by Nick Ansom, Project Backboard's Advisory Board Chair and the founder of Veniceball, which has provided shoes, gear and basketballs to people all over the world.
