Future footballers in South Africa

2021 was a tough year in South Africa as all sports tournaments for schools were canceled due to pandemic. During some months some school sporting activities were allowed to take place but with no spectators or outside staff. That meant that we could not send our chaperones nor could we do the planned ball projects.

We did acquire about 500 tennis balls that we were supposed to use with planned ball projects. We also have about 50 Soccer balls that we were supposed to hand out to Township Soccer teams but with the restrictions, we were not allowed to. Hopefully, all this could be handed out in 2022.

We are very grateful for your support. The Ball project makes it possible for us to create opportunities to train volunteers in order to use them in our Ball Project Outreaches. They then become Chaperones at tournaments and once again use the tournament as a platform to hand out balls to coaches and Township teams.

Another coach from November batch runs a community football at Sunakothi reaching 45 girls and boys on a regular basis and mentoring them.

The program is getting multiplied in different parts of Nepal and we are more than excited how God has used the training as a tool to reach the new places through football.

This is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Haiti, Play It Forward.

Academie du sport et de leadership /Play It Forward working through sport and leadership in Haiti. We use sport as a tool to mentor and develop young leaders. Sport is a unique opportunity that we have to work with children, youth and families. We are working with coaches and athletes to train and equip them to be godly leaders in the sporting fields, leadership and modeling. Currently, we are working with more than 130 coaches across Haiti and helping them form community leadership teams.

We use the Ball Project funds to supply our sport academy as well as 130 coaches all over Haiti who are affiliated with the movement. I meet with these coaches 3 times a year to keep them motivated in their work with children and to share the vision of working in communities through sport. I’m not able to supply all of them, so those who really catch the vision, show faithfulness in their work, and stay connected in our WhatsApp group are the ones who receive the sport equipment so they can work more effectively. These coaches receive training and sport equipment to work with thousands of children and youth in Haiti. With the Ball Project funds, thousands of children and youth are being transformed by learning who is God and how to be a leader in their community. They will be changed by living out the heart values. They will learn to make our community look better. They will understand the role of a coach in their life as a father who will help them to succeed in life.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world working faithfully to develop young leaders, build community & help children play.
