It is always encouraging to see Ball Project partners working together to help children play.

It is amazing to see the power of sport & the power of play uproot people & get them to move across the world to help children play.

This partner is from Belgium but works with kids in South Africa. They are moving full time to South Africa in a few months.

Here is a short update on their work:

We used the donation from Ball Project for our sport camp we set up in South Africa in the township of Tikwana (This is in the Free state province).

We set up a sport camp every year with limited resources, to get the kids off the streets but also encourage, teach and mentor them and just give them an amazing time.

We are also permanently there in a few months and will continue to use the soccer balls, volleyballs and cones we bought then to set up sports programs throughout the year.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners in South Africa, Africa & around the world working (& playing) to help children play.

One of the great things of working with Ball Project is that most of the people we work with are great, fun people that are friends as well as partners.

These partners from Panama are originally from Costa Rica. They are working primarily with students in Panama City each week. They are also training others to start their own projects.
