“Every kid around the world who plays soccer wants to be Pele. I have a great responsibility to show them not just how to be like a soccer player, but how to be like a man.” – Pele

Ball Project was founded on one simple idea: If children learn to play together when they are young, they are less likely to fight each other as adults.

A ball can bring people together (check out how).

At Ball Project our mission is to help children by helping children play.

Ball Project works to get balls & sports equipment to community leaders around the world to help children play & reach their full potential. It is simple. It works.

Ball Project is a small organization that is volunteer led. 100% of donations go to partners to buy balls & other equipment for sport & games.

Ball Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

“The best way to attract the kids? Bring a ball and they will come in hundreds. You don’t need to blow the whistle. Just bounce the ball.”– Joseph, Zambia
