Our Story

Buckets & Borders started in 2015 as a project to document basketball culture around the world. Since then, we’ve visited and played basketball in more than 50 countries. 

In 2020 we transformed into a non-profit organization that uses basketball as a means to improve communities and bring people together through basketball. 

Our home court is Canada. Our impact is global.


We believe that basketball unites us and empowers communities to thrive through sport. 

Our work is dedicated to improving communities and bringing people together through basketball by restoring outdoor basketball courts, telling impactful stories, and working collaboratively with communities to fulfill our mandate. 

Our vision is to be recognized as a leading non-profit organization that is active in more than 25 communities globally by 2025.
