In 2004, One on One Basketball joined forces with the Chicago-Casablanca Sister Cities Organization to develop and help implement ”Casa-Basket”. Casa Basket was a ten year commitment between Chicago and Casablanca to teach basketball to approximately 900 children a year from Casablanca’s poorest neighborhoods. The program focused on giving kids a positive outlet through the sport of basketball. The targeted neighborhoods were viewed as a high recruitment area for terrorist organizations. The program was very successful and One on One’s role was cited in a Pew Global Attitudes Report that documented increasingly positive views of the United States by Moroccan citizens.
