The big idea behind Ball Project is small & simple: children that play together are less likely to fight each other when they grow up.

The mission of Ball Project is to help children play.

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

Last Bell works with orphanage graduates in Zhytomyr, Ukraine, about 450 last year, offering mentorship and practical help. Play is important for all our relationships, but especially for the little kids who stay at our Shelter Crisis Housing facility with their moms (who are orphans). Ball Project helped us install a trampoline, a play house, and other “at home” play equipment. Our kids are loving it!

Here is an update on Covid-19 in Angola, as well as an encouraging letter that one of our partners in Angola received from one of the young people that they had mentored & coached:

Considering the real situation of COVID-19, we have all sports activities stopped, I was only able to make a few visits to some children who needed encouragement. Taking advantage of this break on sports, I am taking the opportunity to produce cabbages and tomatoes for food after games for the post-COVID-19 season.

The best thing that happened in my entire life was the first time I received a letter and transcribed some excerpts below: “Mano (mean big brother) G, Good morning, good afternoon or good night … according to the time you read this message. Mano I’m AF, today I send this message to you my oldest brother Mano, Thank you very much and I praise God for your presence … now I´m 26 years old studying music, and always taking all your wisdom and teachings, to make us live the good and wise way in real life since childhood, otherwise I wouldn’t be who I am, let me say you are an angel on earth, without exaggeration , we know humans always have our faults (which is normal and makes human beings) I am a good man, a good citizen all through your family base and support. I love you and I carry you forever in my heart … hugs. AF

What a wonderful story of the impact that a coach can have on a young person.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners in Angola & around the world working hard to build their communities, coach & mentor young people & help children play.
