The big idea behind Ball Project is: children grow up playing together are less likely to be fighting each other when they grow up.

The mission of Ball Project is to help children play.

Ball Project helps children play by working to get balls & equipment for sports & games to community leaders & coaches around the world.

Ball Project partners help children play in Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Europe, North & South & Latin America, & the South Pacific. Ball Project partners help children play in orphanages, prisons, refugee camps, rehab centers, schools & community leagues & clinics.

A decent soccer ball can cost anywhere from $6 in Mozambique to close to $80 in the South Pacific.

Ball Project is entirely volunteer led & made possible by the support of our partners & donors.

& obviously, Ball Project is grateful for our partners around the world working to improve their communities & to help children play.

I am on my way to Asia to meet with partners. It is never easy leaving family & friends at home. Thankfully 2 good friends are coming along.

The focus of the trip will be to meet with new & old friends & partners & see some existing projects & scout for new opportunities. A couple of practical outcomes will be:

  1. Find out what is working & what isn’t
  2. Find out ways Ball Project can & can’t help

It is important to try to be with partners face to face on the ground where we can eat together & spend time talking, listening, encouraging & learning from one another as we work together to help children play.

 

Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Moldova about Floorball:

We know, that floorball is one of the better tools for working with kids and teenagers.
This sport develop them and it is interesting for them, because it is new, effective and spectacular sport.

We are confident that floorball is one of the best tools for mentoring.
Using this sport you can create a huge movement in your society.

-Moldova has 3 floorball clubs. 120 players ( U7,U15,U18)
National Floorball Championship, Armator International Floorball Championship are in Moldova.

Floorball Moldova organize sport-floorball seminars, conferences, presentations and different events.

We have 8 mentoring groups. 
Coaches have individual meetings with players, where they mentor and study values more deeply. There are individual meetings and a lot of activities,
for example: projects with families and sport festivals.
