One of the great things of working with Ball Project is that most of the people we work with are great, fun people that are friends as well as partners.

These partners from Panama are originally from Costa Rica. They are working primarily with students in Panama City each week. They are also training others to start their own projects.

Here is a short update from our friends:

Thanks Ball Project to support the sport work in Panama, the new equipment will be great to continue with the volleyball work and camps for many kids and teenagers in Panama.

Ball Project is grateful for our partners all around the world working week in & week out to help children play.

Here is a wonderful update from Nou Hope, one of our partners in Haiti:

We were able to purchase two of the One World Futbols (one for each the village of LaMare and Terre-Salei’s futbol teams).

We also purchased two other regular soccer balls for the villages (see photo from Sunday’s futbol match with ball being used) along with some pump needles that were given to the coaches of the two teams.

We then dispersed funds to our partners so they could purchase two more game quality balls in country and then hire locals (from the village of Terre-Salei) to make 200-250 jump ropes to be distributed to several schools in the area.

Thank you for partnering with us! It is good to see the people in the village playing.

Ball Project is thankful for all of our partners around the world working to help children play & smile.

& Ball Project is grateful for One World Play Project‘s great balls – they are great, pretty much indestructible & sure help a lot of kids around the world play.

I am back home from a week of partner meetings in Asia & about a week of partner meetings here in the USA.

It was good to go & it is good to be back.

In Asia, I was supposed to go to Nepal but Air India decided to cancel my flights. So no Nepal but I got an extra day in Singapore.

Soccer clinic in Nepal that I did not get to see…..

The time in Asia was very encouraging & there are lots of opportunities & partnerships to develop.

I spent almost a week here in the USA with partners from around the world. I had meetings with at least 20 partners from 19 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, South Pacific & North, South & Central America.

I was able to connect with potential Ball Project partners in France & Sweden, as well as, introduce a few people to The Viewfinder Project & the great work they are doing using photography to help people “see life differently.”

Ball Project is thankful for our supporters & partners committed to help kids play.
