Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Angola:

BP Angola 2019

We focus on Whole Life Coaching. We have 5 groups with 80 children each and five coach. The meeting is weekly. Recently we launched the second generation under elevens team in holidays, we hope to form 10 teams in each group.

We have lot of stories: it is a joy to see kids wearing a real jersey, replacing the handmade ball with a real ball, and it is easy talking about life because the children respect us.

One child said, “Uncle you are very good bring to us a ball and fun even for girls.”
When we launched an under 11 Whole Life Coaching, a formal professional soccer player come to me and he said, “I can see your love of soccer what about starting a club?”

Also in our culture, it is normal that adults not have time to take care of children.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world working to build communities & help children play.
