A short but sweet update from one of our Nigerian partners:

As part of our programs, we traveled to Kaduna State to lead a sports leadership training. We had 16 coaches coming from different communities.

Also, we distributed about 160 Balls (150 soccer balls and 10 basketballs)!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world traveling & training coaches to help children play.
