Here is a short update from one of our Ball Project partners in Buenos Aires, Argentina:

“With the grant money we received we were able to buy 9 new balls, 2 volleyballs, 1 outdoor soccer ball, 4 regular indoor soccer balls, and 2 smaller indoor soccer balls for the smaller kids. This is great for us last night when I brought the balls out the kids were very excited and I think this will give us more creditability with the kids as we move forward as well.

We run soccer four nights a week and the balls we did have were very old and had holes in them, now we have new balls that will last several more years so our programs can last longer. We also have new volleyballs so we can expand out program as well in the future.

Thank you so much for you help in what God is doing here in Buenos Aires.”

Here is a bit of an update from one of our partners in Argentina:

“In Córdoba we are teaching soccer classes to children and youths on a football field that used to be a garbage pit. The field is located in one of the toughest areas in Córdoba characterised by high levels of crime and consumption of drugs.

We meet 4 times a week with different groups. At the beginning of each class we teach values and lifeskills. Although it sometimes looks like the lessons aren’t really ‘sinking’ and producing changes in their behaviour we are happy to see some fruits.

I remember B for exemple who had been behaving terribly the other day. He even took off with one of our soccer balls. At the start of the next class he inmediately wanted to talk to me in private and asked for forgiveness. It struck me that he took the initiative to talk to me. 

Thanks for the soccer balls!! They are a huge blessing.”

Sometimes outdoor fields are hard to come by because of bad weather or lack of funds or space. Then things get creative.
