2011 was a very good year for Ball Project. & 2012 looks like it is going to be very busy as well.

So far this year we have been working on quite a bit of housekeeping so that we can more effectively work with our Ball Project partners around the world. We have talking with existing & potential Ball Project partners to find the best opportunities to help children play.

The average Ball Project grant is only $500 so we try to find opportunities where 20-30 balls can really impact a community & advance the work of 1 or more projects in a region or country.

The first project of 2012 is with one of our existing partners in Chennai India. We are giving a ball to each of the 46 leaders at a 1 month sports leadership school & to each of the 21 leaders at a community transformation school. These young leaders come from around India, Nepal & Sri Lanka. Something as simple as a soccer ball can greatly help them as they go home & being their community projects & help children play.
