The big idea behind Ball Project is simply to help children play.

Ball Project helps children play by helping get balls & sports equipment to community leaders & coaches around the world.

Ball Project partners help children play in Africa, Asia, Europe, North & South & Latin America, & the South Pacific. Ball Project partners help children play in orphanages, prisons, refugee camps, rehab centers, schools & community leagues & clinics.

A decent soccer ball can cost anywhere from $6 in Mozambique to close to $80 in the South Pacific.

Ball Project is volunteer led & made possible by the support of our partners & donors.

& obviously, Ball Project is grateful for our partners around the world working to improve their communities & to help children play.

Here is a short update from one of our partners in Nigeria:

Please, kindly find the attached photo of street kids in Gambia playing football with Ball Project balls.

I gave the balls on my recent visit to Gambia to encourage sports growth and development among indigenous Gambians.

Thanks for helping to make this happen.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners & donors who help kids play all around the world.

Here is a short update from one of our Ball Project partners in Zambia that works with teams, coaches, academies & churches:

Ball Project has helped the young people and coaches to build value systems as the result of the ball usage. Values like stewardship, responsibility, ownership, resourcefulness and creativity.

As they meet for training and practice they share small business ideas and put them into practice. Like crafts, gardens and small shops. They make money for school, food and save for the future.

Thank you for the provision.

Simple things can make a big difference. Focus helps results. We are always grateful & encouraged by our partners around the world focused on helping children by helping children play.
